Overview: Technical Ceramics
Final Advanced Materials offers three product lines of technical ceramics. These materials are popular in the high temperature industry as well as for extrem conditions applications. Choosing the right ceramic depends greatly on the forseen challenges: temperature, corrosion, compressive and flexural strength... It is also necessary to understand the properties of the raw material before choosing a ceramic type.
Product Range: Technical Ceramics
Sintered ceramics allow the making of parts with high mechanical strength. We only work with high purity, calibrated and approved ceramics. From drafts, these shaped parts are obtained by moulding or extrusion using diamond machining for dense ceramics.
We define the parameters of our prototypes as well as machining them, along with personal production in small and large series. We design and machine ceramic components adapted to specific customer applications: sensors, medical technology, equipment and mechanical engineering, microsystems technology, chemical and process engineering.
Our wide range of sintered technical ceramics will enable you to select the most suitable material for your purpose: alumina, zircon, boron nitride, silicon carbide, silicon nitrid and aluminium nitride.
Machinable ceramics are easily produced using conventional machine tools. These ceramics can be sawn, drilled, milled and turned with conventional tools, available in all general mechanical workshops.
Machinable ceramics can be used to create small parts as well as validation prototypes. A single ceramic is unable to meet all demands and stresses, which is why we have spent years developing a complete range of easily machinable ceramic materials that are able to meet maximum constraints: alumina, Macor®, Shapal Hi-M Soft, alumina silicate, quartz, porous silica Rescor 310M, boron nitride, aluminium nitrid and Vitro800.
Our range of pressed ceramic products are suitable for applications requiring parts with less severe constraints. The properties required for their applications are obtained by cooking above 1,000 °C.
Parts are manufactured by cutting and shaping by means of drying presses, via a wet process and using extruders. Treatment can be carried out on crude materials. The need to make shaping tools means this ceramic range consists only of the large variety.
As standard pressed ceramic products, we offer: mullit, synthetic cordierite and steatite.
