Materials Ranked by Compressive Strength
CeramAlox™ Ultra Pure’s compressive strength performance characteristics are the highest compared to all other materials. This is closely followed by Zirconia Toughened Alumina, Silicon Carbide, and Silicon Nitride and others.
Ceramic Material Comparison Chart
The ability to resist fracture is a mechanical property of materials known as fracture toughness. For advanced ceramics it uses a critical stress intensity factor known as KIC where the fracture normally occurs at the crack terminations.
Density is the mass of a material per unit volume. The unit of measurement can be expressed in different ways and is referred us as g/cm3 but another measurement value is kg/m3.
One of the most valuable characteristics of advanced ceramics in high-performance applications is their extreme hardness. Hard ceramic materials are used for a wide range of applications in diverse fields and applications such as cutting tools for milling and grinding.
