High-Tech Ceramic, CeramTec, Material
Technical Ceramics from The Ceramic Experts

Advanced ceramics provide the basis for CeramTec products. This material is also referred to as technical ceramics, engineering ceramics or industrial ceramics. These terms cover many different and in part highly-specialized ceramic materials with unique mechanical, electrical, thermal and biochemical properties and property combinations.

These specific characteristics can be further developed, optimized and matched for use in technical applications. It is also possible to combine different properties. Materials like these can be used to design advanced components that perform the required tasks with optimum precision and can be light years ahead of competing materials such as metal or plastic in the respective field of application. Components made from ceramic materials are increasingly the only solution available for technical challenges that cannot be overcome with conventional materials.
