Lancer Systems LP (Allentown, Pa.), an engineering and manufacturing group specializing in plastic, composite and fiber optic technologies, today announced they have acquired all assets and rights related to CeraComp, a proprietary ceramic matrix composite technology for high temperature applications. CeraComp technology was developed by Greene, Tweed & Co. (Kulpsville, Pa.), manufacturer of high-performance composites and integrated materials.

"The addition of trademarked CeraComp to our already robust composites expertise and capabilities allows Lancer to provide even greater value to our customer's high temperature application needs," said Bill Meiklejohn, president of Lancer. "We're excited about the possibilities this intellectual property holds for all areas of our composites business."

CeraComp is a hard, lightweight, chemically resistant and thermally insulative composite material that provides improved structural integrity and fracture resistance compared to monolithic ceramics and is suitable for use in continuous operating environments where the temperature exceeds 600°C (1,100°F).
