CERAMICS
 USES, PROPERTIES AND APPLICATIONS
At Lucideon, our extensive experience of ceramic materials extends from those used in traditional areas, such as tableware, sanitaryware, tiles and refractories, to advanced technical ceramics, seen in industries as diverse as aerospace, medical and communications. For more than 90 years we have helped the ceramic industry move from craft-based activities to efficient and sophisticated industrial operations and now, our knowledge of advanced technical ceramics, combined with our expertise in materials and process development is helping manufacturers to develop new products, processes and applications.
WHY USE CERAMIC MATERIALS?
-
They offer combinations of properties, making them uniquely suited to certain high performance applications
-
Often they are the only class of materials which can operate in hostile environments
-
They are, generally, hard, stiff, and resistant to high temperatures
-
Some ceramic materials can be fabricated to yield specific properties such as piezoelectrics, superconductors, optical and magnetic properties and biocompatibility
DIFFERENT CERAMIC MATERIALS
 DIFFERENT PROPERTIES
-
Traditional ceramics
 aesthetic, non toxic, easy clean
-
Zirconia
 biocompatible, strong, stiff, tough, ion conducting, thermally insulating, corrosion resistant
-
Alumina - biocompatible, strong, stiff, electrically insulating, hard, impact resistant
-
Complex oxides (Titanates, Stannates, Cuprates and Ferrites)
 dielectric, piezoelectric, environmental, magnetic, superconductive
-
Silicon nitride
 strong, thermally conductive, thermal shock resistant, corrosion resistant
-
Silicon carbide - strong, thermally conductive, thermal shock resistant, corrosion resistant, electrically conductive
-
Aluminium nitride
 thermally conductive, impact resistant
-
Boron nitride - thermally conductive, thermal shock resistant, corrosion resistant, electrically conductive
-
Boron carbide
 hard, abrasion resistant, low density, high neutron capture cross section
-
Steatite and Cordierite - electrically insulating, tailored thermal expansion, thermal shock resistant
