Technical ceramics is used in the industry in addition to metals and plastics.The industry is always looking for ways to extend the service life of machines and/or their parts. 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
- High E-modulus resulting in a high degree of rigidity
- High temperature resistance
- High degree of wear resistance
- High degree of corrosion resistance
Some other properties of technical ceramics are its low toughness and low coefficient of expansion. Our Gimex advisers are happy to be of assistance.
