Ceramics in the Science Industry

The use of technical ceramics in extreme environments is well known. Some of the most demanding applications are at the cutting edge of scientific research where ceramics function in ultra-high vacuum providing electrical insulation whilst undergoing bombardment by high magnetic fields, radioactive environments or cryogenic temperatures.

The ability of technical ceramics to survive and deliver consistent performances across a range of research from the latest fusion science to advanced particle physics, high energy lasers and cryogenic research shows the scope and capability of the materials we offer.

Precision Ceramics Europe has a proven history in these fields, making bespoke components to individual designs and manufacturing these where required for some of the world’s major scientific experiments.
