Exothermic supports a wide range of advanced materials development activities encompassing the development of ultrahigh temperature ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), refractory compounds and functional electromagnetic materials.
Exothermics has specialized engineering skills in the design and analysis of sputtering and vacuum furnaces as well as complex mechanisms for vacuum chambers, and offers further engineering support for a plethora of hot pressing, carbon fiber manufacturing, HIP processing, vacuum brazing, heat transfer, FEA, Joule heating, and Ply layup manufacturing disciplines.
At Exothermics we offer precision machining and milling of a variety of metals, various types of plastics, graphite, a variety of ceramics, as well as composites. We can mill small to large as well as simple to complex parts and offer short run production and prototyping.
The ultrahigh temperature materials and sputtering target fabrication efforts at Exothermics have required that we develop specialized skills around the sheet metal forming, electron beam welding, TIG welding of various Group IV and V reactive and refractory metals.
Our customers enjoy having access to one of the world’s largest, most diverse, and technologically advanced material characterization, prototyping, design, engineering, development, testing, validation, production, and manufacturing facilities in the world dedicated to the art and science of cost-effective non-oxide ceramics, refractory metals and specialty thin film products and technologies, all under one roof.
Exothermics was founded in late 1996, and since that time we have primarily focused on development and commercialization of cost-effective, non-oxide ceramics, refractory metals and specialty thin film technologies for end use in aerospace/defense, semicon and other niche markets.
