Growing uses in space shuttle and race cars
Ceramic textile is a key component in the development of strong, lightweight space debris shields for use on the Space Station Laboratory Habitation and other unmanned missions. The lightweight and durable fabric property of ceramic textile allow design engineers to meet or exceed their specifications. Furthermore, the growing uses of ceramic textiles across various space application as a micrometeorite shield, whipple shield, door seals, gaskets, shuttle tiles, booster access doors, and exit cone drives the growth of this market. For instance, the shield, produced at NASA Marshall Space Center in Huntsville and the Johnson Space Center in Houston, contains Ceramic Fabrics made by 3M. Furthermore, NASA used Nextel ceramic in space shuttle development for shuttle tiles which can stand up to the heat of reentry. Later, the fibers were used to fill gaps between orbital tiles and are woven into insulation blankets, heat shield and other protective gears. Besides, the ceramic textile widely popular among NASCAR drivers and racing cars. The thermal and wear resistance property make the usage of ceramic textile popular in race cars. The thermal resistance property keeps NASCOM drivers cool inside the car cockpit where temperature can attain a peak point during the race which is hot enough to melt the shoes of driver. By leveraging ceramic in race cars can reduce the weight of the vehicle and can provide precision steering and handling of the car.
Ceramic Textile Market Challenges
Selection of a proper material composition and availability of other alternatives
The selection of a proper material composition is one of the most challenging factors to destroy the optical uniformity of ceramic body and cause the scattering of light. Furthermore, the presence of lack of skilled labor and training centers are also hampering the market growth. However, if there is a greater difference in material composition, then there should be a greater difference in refractive index that leads to lower the light transmittance of the whole ceramic. Hence, the highly skilled operator is required to select a proper material composition in order to maintain the quality of the end product like the crystal boundary region of Ceramic Textile should be thin, better light matching, no porosity and inclusion, and dislocation. However, the availability of glass fabrics as an alternative material acts as a restraining factor for the growth of Ceramic Textile market.
