SPECIFICATIONS OF OUR MATERIALS
The specific characteristics of each technical ceramic make this material appropriate for a specific application in different industrial environments.
Technical ceramics resist high temperatures and thermal shock very well, they are used in applications submitted to 1000ºC in which most of the materials melt.
Thanks to the chemical resistance of the material, it is used in applications in contact with abrasive chemicals such as those in agriculture or pharmaceuticals.
Technical ceramics have good bending strength, so they do not break easily.
Technical ceramics have excellent compressive strength, which means that they are able to stand high crushing loads.
Ceramic materials are not usually electro conductive having a low coefficient of thermal conductivity, which makes them optimum materials for welding processes or high temperature applications such as high-performance engines.
Technical ceramics do not react chemically to external agents, making them a suitable material for medical applications such as prosthetics or dental implants.
While most ceramics are more fragile, some of the technical ceramics offer a good resistance to impact by resisting shocks properly.
In comparison to many other metals, the technical ceramics do not suffer by corrosion when they enter in contact with air and water.
