Technical ceramics is the generic term for ceramic materials that have very different properties/structures depending on the requirement profile.
Materials for technical ceramics
Zirconia oxide is the high-performance material among the oxide ceramics. It features exceptional fracture toughness, high wear and corrosion resistance, and low thermal conductivity.
Alumina, on the other hand, is the most commonly used ceramic material. Thanks to its very good electrical insulation, dielectric strength and high temperature resistance up to 1750°C, it is ideal for electrical applications and high-temperature applications.
The optimal properties of both materials are realized in our mixed oxide ceramics. Here great strength and toughness are combined with hardness and wear resistance.
Our special materials include the so-called non-oxidic, ceramic high-performance materials such as silicon nitride and carbide as well as boron carbide and aluminum nitride. They have very different properties that are tailored precisely to the respective application. All relevant properties of our precision components made of technical ceramics are listed in a comparison table.
