1.Harder than conventional structure metals.

Ceramics have a fracture toughness about fifty times less than metals, even though their bonding forces are higher.

2. Low coefficient of friction.
Because ceramic is a glass like surface it has an extremely low coefficient of friction and is ideal for applications seeking to reduce friction.

3. Extremely high melting point

As a result of their high bond strengths, ceramics typically have very high melting temperatures, often much higher than metals and polymers. Most ceramics and glasses have a melting temperature above 2000°C. This means that they are often used in high temperature applications.

4. Corrosion Resistance The chemical resistance of oxide layers in high temperature ceramic coatings shields base materials from both vapor and liquid corrosive environments. Ceramic coatings are ideal for high- and low-voltage electrical applications and many other purposes.

5. Low Density

They can be readily formed into complex shapes.

Industrial Ceramics

6. Inexpensive 7. Easily Available
Their raw materials are both plentiful and cheap or affordable.

8. Glazed ceramic does not stain Instead of being painted or sealed after being fired, ceramic tiles are glazed. Glazes are also used to give ceramic tile color. These glazes are the reason that ceramic tiles so stain-resistant.
