Materials Ranked by Thermal Expansion
Zirconia (ZrO2) - CeramaZirc™
Unlike traditional ceramics that tend to be hard and brittle, Zirconia offers high strength, wear resistance, and flexibility far beyond those of most other advanced ceramics.
Zirconia (ZrO2) - CeramaZirc™ Ultra Tough
CeramaZirc Ultra Tough is an advanced zirconia-based ceramic composite material based on partially stabilized zirconia and alumina platelets.
Macor® – Machinable Glass Ceramic
Macor is a hybrid glass-ceramic with the versatility of a high performance polymer, the machinability of a metal, and the performance of an advanced advanced ceramic.
Alumina (Al2O3) – CeramAlox™
Alumina, also known as Aluminum Oxide, is a hard wearing advanced advanced ceramic material frequently used in a wide variety of industrial applications.
Alumina (Al2O3) – CeramAlox™ Ultra Pure
CeramaAlox Ultra Pure is a very high purity (99.95%) grade of Alumina (Aluminum Oxide) exhibiting an exceptional combination of mechanical and electrical properties.
Ceramic Material Comparison Chart
Thermal conductivity measures how easily heat is transmitted through a material. There is a growing specialist market for advanced ceramics use in applications with high thermal conductivity requirements.
Advanced ceramics are well known for their heat withstanding properties in which they only start to melt at temperatures around 2000℃. In comparison to more common ceramic materials such as tile or brick, they start to melt at temperatures around 650℃.
