And the demands made of the materials used in a wide variety of applications are also increasing. The higher demands made of the materials are required to lead to higher performance and improved system reliability.

If traditional metals and plastics no longer meet these requirements, then ceramics can offer a wide range of options.

Advantages of technical ceramics are:

  • High degree of hardness
