Products & Services
Thermal and Refractory Ceramics
Thermal and refractory ceramics are inorganic, engineered materials that are designed for high-temperature applications. They are used for thermal insulation and fire proofing, and also as structural materials. Additional applications include wear parts and tooling, electrical and electronic components, glass manufacturing, materials processing, corrosion protection, and ballistics.
Inorganic Chemicals and Compounds
Inorganic chemicals, inorganic salts and inorganic compounds are substances of mineral origin that do not contain carbon in their molecular structure.
Aluminum Oxide and Alumina Ceramics
Aluminum oxide and alumina ceramics have excellent wear characteristics, chemical resistance, compressive strength, high-temperature properties, and dielectric strength. They are used widely because of their versatility and low cost. Their main drawback is its relatively poor thermal-shock resistance due to higher coefficients of thermal expansion and lower thermal conductivity (compared to other pure ceramic materials).
Industrial Ceramic Materials
Industrial ceramic materials are non-metallic, inorganic compounds that include oxides, carbides, or nitrides. They have high melting points, low wear resistance, and a wide range of electrical properties.
Refractory Services
Refractory services for manufacturing, installing and repairing refractory shapes or monolithic refractories.
