Fornax Advanced Materials produces next generation, state of the art materials for extreme environments and applications where failure is not an option.

Our materials have been validated by demonstrating substantial improvements in physical and mechanical properties, when compared to materials already in the market. Our processes for production and manufacturing have demonstrated advantages that include substantial reductions in energy requirements, increases in time efficiency, and achievements in size and shape capabilities.

The materials in the Fornax Advanced Materials portfolio are based on research and patents originating from Idaho National Laboratory.

Substantial improvements in physical and mechanical properties, including density, thermal conductivity, grain structure, corrosion resistance, strength, and toughness

Increased size and shape capabilities

Low defect rates due to reduced variability in the forming process
 

Exceptional reductions in energy consumption during processing and production

Improved throughput and efficiency during processing and production

Decarbonization - no fossil fuels required

Fornax Advanced Materials' processes allow for:

Fornax Advanced Materials has a portfolio of materials, processes, and solutions that represent significant improvement and innovation to what is currently available in the market.

Silicon Carbide: Fornax Advanced Materials produces silicon carbide tiles that, when compared to traditionally consolidated SiC-tiles of equivalent description (weight, size, etc.), demonstrate a 30% increase in hardness, possess an improved grain structure, and can be delivered in sizes up to 24 inches with curvature (if desired). These tiles are created through a repeatable, high-throughput, and energy efficient method.
