Scientists develop world’s most heat-resistant material

Team Udayavani, Jun 1, 2020, 1:15 PM IST

New ceramic material with the highest known melting point has been developed  by scientists from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) MISIS in Russia.

The material can withstand temperatures of nearly 4,000 degrees Celsius. Aircrafts need such compounds for parts like jet engines, nose fairings and sharp front edges of wings as the temperature at such parts can go above 2000 degrees C while in flight.

Veronika Buinevich, NUST MISIS post-graduate, said, “It’s hard to measure a material’s melting point when it exceeds 4000 degrees С. Therefore, we decided to compare the melting temperatures of the synthesized compound and the original champion, hafnium carbide.”

In future, the team plans to conduct experiments on measuring the melting temperature by high-temperature pyrometry using a laser or electric resistance.
