Technical ceramics have some outstanding features, such as value retention, temperature resistance, wear resistance, hardness, biocompatibility and also insulating properties. In our opinion, there is no need for more arguments in favor of this material.
The right composition for every application
With ceramic components, it is the mixture that is most important. The properties of technical ceramics can be specifically influenced and improved for special areas of application: With a suitable selection and fine-tuning of the material composition, your material is even better adapted to the environmental conditions. The foundations of every product made of technical ceramics are the finest, high-purity powders and binder systems, which are sintered into a finished component in a high-temperature furnace. By varying the powders and developing its own binder systems, Bosch Advanced Ceramics has perfected its materials.
The extreme hardness of technical ceramics makes them suitable for high pressure loads and adverse conditions.
Technical ceramics have a thermal insulating effect.
When low expansion is required, technical ceramics are the material of choice.
Technical ceramics are resistant to many chemicals such as acids and alkalis and are therefore corrosion-resistant.
Low friction and heat generation ensure the best possible tribological properties.
Technical ceramics have an electrically insulating effect.
The excellent mechanical properties of technical ceramics ensure low abrasion and a long service life even under heavy loads.
The heat resistance extends to well over 1000°C – for high-temperature applications, technical ceramics are therefore often the only alternative.

New and further development of
In our own research field for technical ceramics, materials scientists work on the new development of ceramic and composite materials. The improvement of ceramic technologies for the production of high-precision components and the further development of process technology for consistently high quality are also being driven forward here. With our own research field for smart coatings, we are also further developing the functionality of ceramics and creating smart products.
