Advanced Ceramics

Superior properties for demanding applications
PI-KEM supplies advanced ceramics including 3YSZ, alumina, zirconia, boron carbide & silicon carbide. Sold as tiles, blocks, crucibles, balls, plates, rods & nozzles

Advanced ceramics are inorganic, non-metallic materials with high strength, hardness, chemical inertness, and thermal stability. They are used in a wide range of applications, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, and medical devices.

PI-KEM supplies a range of advanced ceramics, each with their own performance characteristics and applications.  For example:

  • Alumina: Very hard and wear-resistant material that is often used in applications where durability is critical, such as in cutting tools, bearings, and electronic components
  • Zirconia: Very tough and fracture-resistant material that is often used in applications where strength and reliability are important, such as in dental implants and artificial joints
  • Silicon carbide and boron carbide:  Very hard and wear-resistant materials that are often used in high-temperature and high-pressure applications, such as in armour plating and semiconductor manufacturing

These are offered in standard forms and as custom manufactured components and assemblies.
