Ceradyne, Inc. has received its initial order for boron carbide/aluminum metal matrix composite (MMC) components from Transnuclear for more than $1.5 million. The MMC components are for dry storage of spent nuclear fuel and are scheduled for delivery by the end of the second quarter of 2007. Ceradyne's new subsidiary, Ceradyne Canada, in Chicoutimi, Quebec, will manufacture the components from MMC ingots, which will be produced by Alcan Inc. using its patented MMC casting process. The components will be integrated into Transnuclear's NUHOMS® Systems, which are used by U.S. nuclear powered utilities.
