Weight reduction is a challenge in all industries Weight reduction leads to either faster movement, less energy consumption and thus to a better environment. There is a strong push from the governments across Europe to further reduce weight. In many applications there is a limitation for further weight reduction. When a part is exposed to wear, we basically can only use heavy materials like steel or ceramics. Today there is no material available which is strong, light and wear resistant. CeraCarbon took the challenge to find a solution for this problem.
