Corning substrates are honeycomb-like structures with thousands of parallel channels. The walls of these channels provide the surface for precious-metal catalysts that convert noxious emissions into carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.
Corning substrates enable highly efficient emissions control systems by offering:
- High surface area
- Low pressure drop
- Rapid light-off
- Thermal-mechanical durability
- System cost efficiency
Corning Celcor® standard-wall substrates
Corning Celcor® substrates are used in a variety of catalytic converter applications to help vehicle manufacturers meet emission regulations.
Corning Celcor® thin-wall substrates
The thinner walls (as thin as 4 mil) of Corning Celcor® thin-wall substrates provide greater geometric surface area to help improve conversion efficiency.
Corning Celcor® ultrathin-wall substrates
With wall thickness of less than 4 mils, Corning Celcor® ultrathin-wall substrates enable the design of much more efficient catalytic converters for extremely low emissions.
Corning Celcor® LFA substrates
Corning Celcor LFA substrates are helping engine and vehicle manufacturers worldwide meet tightening federal and local diesel emissions standards. Offering lower back pressure and higher geometric surface area in a large frontal area (LFA) monolithic substrate, these advanced substrates help enhance system performance.
