Our material portfolio

Aluminium oxide

AI203

The material has a uniquely diversified range of applications because of its numerous degrees of purity. We offer aluminum oxide with a purity ranges from 96.0% to 99.8%.

Application

  • Wear parts for the textile and the machine engineering industry
  • Suitable for high temperatures and corrosive environments, e.g. in laboratories
  • Insulating parts for electronics and electrical engineering

Properties

  • Electrical insulation
  • Thermal resistance
  • Resistance to thermal shock
  • Hardness
  • Pressure resistance

Zirconium dioxide

ZrO2

Zirconium dioxide has the unique feature that it impedes the spread of cracks through the so-called transformation toughening mechanism. No other ceramic material shows such a high fracture toughness combined at the same time with such high stability.

Application

  • Sensor Technology (lambda sensors) for oxygen ion conduction
  • Components that face frequent temperature changes, e.g. draw dies and high-temperature insulating parts
  • In cases where high fracture toughness is required, e.g. for medical instruments

Properties

  • Thermal insulation
  • Thermal resistance
  • Flexural Strength
  • Electrical insulation
  • Fracture toughness

Alumina Toughened Zirconia (ATZ)

ATZ

With this kind of mixed ceramic, a small amount of aluminum oxide is added to the zirconium oxide to significantly improve the wear-resistance, elasticity and toughness.

Application

  • Bearings and guide parts for machine engineering
  • Medical implants

Properties

  • Thermal insulation
  • Flexural Strenth
  • Electrical insulation
  • Temperature and thermo shock resistance
  • Fracture toughness

Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA)

ZTA

With this mixture of ceramics, a small amount of zirconium dioxide is added to the aluminum oxide which significantly improves the hardness and stability and simultaneously increases the toughness.

Application

  • Cutting materials for machine
  • Valves, gear wheels
  • Sensors
  • For highest mechanical loads

Properties

  • Hardness
  • Resistance to pressure
  • Resistance to thermal shock
  • Reistance to temperature
  • Flexural Strenth

Steatite

Steatite

Steatite belongs to a group of silicate ceramics and is composed of magnesium silicate. Because of its excellent processability, the material can be produced economically.

Application

  • Isolators and fuses
  • High frequency technology
  • Especially used in the electronics and automotive industry

Properties

  • Thermal insulation
  • Electrical insulation
  • Resistance to thermal shock
