|Mullite||Excellent heat and thermal shock resistance, and particularly good creep resistance. Its thermal expansion index approximates that of a silicon semiconductor chip.|
|Yttria||Its excellent plasma resistance is ideal for applications in semiconductor processing equipment, where particle contamination must be avoided. It contributes to productivity improvement due by reducing equipment maintenance requirements.|
|Silicon Nitride||Silicon nitride is optimal for engine parts due to its toughness at high temperatures, superior thermal shock resistance, light weight and corrosion resistance.|
|Zirconia||The strongest and toughest of all fine ceramic materials, it is used to make scissors and knives which products once considered impossible to make from ceramic. Single-crystal zirconia is also...|
|Aluminum Nitride||With its properties of electrical insulation and excellent thermal conductivity, Aluminum Nitride is ideal for applications where heat dissipation is required. In addition, since it offers a coefficient of thermal...|
