Zirconium Tungstate has been known as "the incredible
shrinking material" by scientists for few years.
Rarely in nature that a material can counter the thermal
expansion behavior. Dimension generally expands as the
temperature increases. Zirconium Tungstate forms a perfect
crystallized structure that twists as temperature raise,
and seamlessly shrinks isotropically. The in-house processes
and proprietary therapy developed by Broptics allows fine
tuning the CTE of Zirconium Tungstate so as to match the
thermal characteristics of different fibers. This patent-pending
know-how forms the core to bring Zirconium Tungstate to
real world applications. Current CTE tuning range falls
within -9*10-6 /óJ ~ -10*10-6 /óJ.
The Zirconium Tungstate isotropic crystallized structure
makes its CTE very linear over the operation temperature
range. This material can be mixed with other material
to form a new zero-expansion or thermal-resistant composite
material. New applications need to be explored.
