Unseen but Indispensable: Key Application Areas of Advanced Ceramics

Advanced ceramics ensure improved performance, better safety, and greater reliability across a large number of application areas. We interact with advanced ceramics almost every day, often without noticing them. We come across them while washing our hands, working in the kitchen, talking on our mobile phones, driving cars or are at the dentist’s office. At all those places where materials fall short of satisfying specific demands of special application areas, often due to limitation in their physical, electrical, mechanical, or chemical properties, a variety of advanced ceramic products fit-in with ease.

Advanced ceramics, as their name suggests, are ceramics that are modified and made tough so that they can overcome the limitations of traditional ceramics. Properties such as energy efficiency, chemical resistance and biocompatibility, piezoelectricity and dynamics, electric insulation and dielectric strength, corrosion resistance, heat conductivity and thermal shock resistance, and chemical resistance are some of the major characteristic features of advanced ceramics that make them the unrivaled, and optimal solutions for diverse applications.

Some of the key application areas of advanced ceramics include:

  • Metalworking

  • Equipment, machine and plant engineering

  • Chemicals and process engineering

  • Energy supply and environmental technology

  • Recycling and processing

  • Sanitary fittings

  • Sensor and actuator technology

  • Engine and turbine construction

  • Lighting systems

  • Medical implants and prosthetics

  • Water treatment

  • Medical devices

  • Electronics and communications technology

In the electronics industry, for instance, heat-sinks made of advanced electronic substances provide the right conditions for high-power electronics.

Advanced ceramics are employed in a wide range of medical equipment and devices such as ultrasonic cleaners and litho triplets. In the field of dentistry, dental ceramics are used for creating biocompatible, lifelike dental restoration structures such as veneers, crowns, and bridges.

Implant components for artificial knee and hip joints made from extremely resilient and biocompatible advanced ceramics help improve and increase patients’ quality of life, and help them master the challenges of everyday life.

Advanced ceramics make it possible in securely controlling numerous processes, reducing emissions, and taking proper care of resources in many areas of process and chemical engineering.

Their characteristic high wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and high temperature resistance make advanced ceramics a preferred alternative to many other materials in machine, equipment and plant engineering.

Advanced ceramics also play an important role in increasing cost-effectiveness, comfort, and safety in vehicle engineering. Peizoceramic components in vehicles act as sensors for electronic controls and feed them with the data about a vehicle changing its direction or the how smoothly its engine is running. Other electronic components in vehicles based on ceramic substrates control safety systems such as ABS and ASR in response to this information and react accordingly, for instance by releasing airbag, when necessary.

Heat-resistant ceramic parts such as valve components, components for gasoline, backings in the crankshaft housing, etc. in engines ensure increased efficiency, lower noise production, and less wear of the engine.

Furthermore, advanced ceramic components in modern LED systems significantly improve visibility while protective ceramics deliver safety to the product.
