Kyocera Corporation Datasheets for 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.

Product Name Notes
Sapphire Sapphire is single-crystal alumina, a transparent material with excellent chemical stability and valuable mechanical, thermal and optical properties. Its material properties are vastly superior to glass, quartz and other mass-produced...
Silicon Carbide Silicon carbide is the most corrosion-resistant ceramic, and is used in mechanical seals and pump parts. Strength is maintained even at extreme temperatures of up to 1400?.
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.
Alumina The most widely used and best-known fine ceramic material. Good mechanical strength, electrical insulation, high-frequency loss, thermal conductivity, and resistance to heat, wear and corrosion. Sapphire is single-crystal alumina.
