MTC announces SiC partnership with Sintec

Distribution partnership announced between MTC and Sintec.
Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) has announced a distribution partnership with Kennametal Sintec Keramik for its pyrolytic boron nitride (PBN) and chemical vapour distribution silicon carbide (SiC) materials.

Each of these materials is used in the development of compound semiconductors, with PBN particularly useful as it provides superior mechanical strength and thermal stability.

The firm also noted that its SiC products outperform conventional materials in hostile chemical and plasma environments.

"We continually look at ways to improve our processes and by working with Sintec we will be able to shorten lead times, meaning customers will receive products sooner," said Phil McGraw, general manager of MTC.

MTC is a division of The Morgan Crucible Company and specialises in the design, manufacture and marketing of materials for use in a range of applications, such as telecommunications, fire protection and in medical instrumentation.

Formed in 2003, the company recently acquired two UK businesses - Certech and Carpenter Advanced Ceramics.
