Advanced ceramics are used today in many applications and the market continues to grow at close to 10% per year. The various types of advanced ceramics include oxide, carbide, nitride, boride, and nano-sized ceramic powders. Gelest offers many products which can be used as precursors to the required advanced ceramic materials. These are mostly in the form of alkoxides or diketonates which are converted to the ceramic material by the sol gel process or thermolysis.

Uses for advanced ceramics include:

  • Aerospace (gas turbine engine components)
  • Defense (ceramic armor)
  • Medical (replacement hip joints)
  • Microelectronic (wafer fabrication equipment)
  • Optoelectronics (laser components)
