Morgan Advanced Materials announces new P-59 ceramic core material for improved jet engine fuel efficiency

Morgan Advanced Materials (Morgan) announces its new P-59 ceramic core material, a high-silica core type with a fine particle size distribution. The P-59 material is a development of P-52 and represents a breakthrough into the high stability realm of materials. P-59 is intended for Directionally Solidified (DS) and Single Crystal (SX) applications with thin cross sections that P-52 and P-57 core material cannot fill.

Used in the manufacture of jet engine turbine blades as part of the investment casting process, P-59 is at the cutting edge of materials innovation, providing critical benefits to the final product such as increased fuel efficiency. In order to achieve greater efficiency, engines must run at extremely high temperatures which demands superior air cooling capabilities. One element of that air cooling capability is a small, thin, trailing edge portion of the core; P-59 material, with its fine particle size distribution, is able to achieve a trailing edge that is up to 20% thinner than that produced by other materials.

Even with its fine particle size, P-59 is able to maintain other key properties for investment casting, such as stability, crushability and leachability.

In addition to the Aerospace market, Ceramic cores from Morgan are regularly used during the creation a variety of products, including Industrial Gas Turbine blades for power generation.
