Technical ceramics also are known as Engineered, Advanced, Special, and in Japan, Fine Ceramics. Technical ceramics are classified in three distinct material categories:
Technical ceramic materials are able to withstand harsh environments and are used in numerous applications requiring high corrosion (or wear) resistance, high erosion resistance, high temperature capability and low electrical conductivity. Many industries including automotive (engine), industrial (wear), medical, electronic and defense rely on technical ceramics to solve difficult problems.
Saint-Gobain Ceramics offers a wide range of technical ceramic materials for a wide variety of client applications. Our technical ceramic materials are used to manufacturer unfinished machined blanks, finished components, pressed near net shape blanks, high volume pressed net shape components, and complex highly-machined parts.
Hexoloy® SiC oxidation and creep resistant, low mass, high strength material increases throughput and lowers cost of kiln operation.
