IMPROVEMENTS WITH TECHNICAL CERAMICS
TECHNICAL CERAMICS IS THE MATERIAL OF THE FUTURE
To date, ceramics have been considered in a large number of new applications in which high hardness, high wear resistance, high corrosion resistance and good high-temperature stability combined with low specific weight are required.
The new high-tech materials achieve high strength. Their values are comparable to the values of metals and generally exceed all polymers.
The properties of the ceramic materials are largely determined by the respective structure or the microstructure. Through the targeted setting of certain microstructures, the so-called microstructure, the mechanical and physical parameters can be influenced in different directions.
An important aspect to consider when using ceramics is always: "Ceramics are brittle"!
Due to their ductility, metallic construction materials are "balanced and good-natured" materials that sometimes forgive lighter design errors (error tolerance) because they are able to reduce local stress peaks through elastic and plastic deformation.
In addition, the metals are usually characterized by good electrical and thermal conductivity and by characteristic values that are independent of the spatial direction.
Ceramic materials, on the other hand, are usually electrically and thermally insulating, have a high hardness and can have a very low thermal expansion. Due to the lack of plastic deformability, they are also extremely dimensionally stable.
Compressive strengths can be achieved that can be ten times the bending and tensile strength. Compared to metals, ceramics are particularly suitable for use at high temperatures, since the characteristic values of the ceramic materials are influenced far less by temperature loads and only at higher degrees than those of the metals. Ceramics are similarly positive in terms of corrosion and wear.
Because of these advantages, we encounter technical ceramics at every turn. Many household appliances would not work without ceramic insulating parts. Likewise, a reliable power supply would not be conceivable without insulators and fuse components made from technical ceramics.
Ceramic substrates and components form the basis for components and assemblies in all areas of electronics, and in mechanical and plant engineering, sliding and regulating elements ensure wear and corrosion-free function.
Ceramic is indispensable as a construction and insulation material in industrial furnaces in high temperature technology! These few examples already clearly show that technical ceramics play an important role in our world.
However, ceramic components are usually not visible at first glance. Nevertheless, they play a decisive role in conventional applications and also in innovative products, such as in dental technology with dental implants and in the luxury goods segment with black zirconium oxide ceramic watch cases.
The potential of technical ceramics has not yet been exhausted.
