The potential to improve the nature of many components attracts much attention from a range of industries.
Aerospace applications are included in some of the cutting-edge technological developments that are made possible by advanced ceramics. For example in 2020 NASA is planning a mission to Mars which will include a device in which Advanced ceramics could prove
From NASA’s technical reports server on fracture toughness of thin plates Many emerging commercial structures such as fuel cell elements and diesel particulate filters consist of thin brittle plates. The fracture toughness of such thin plates is of interest for
From NASA’s technical reports server on chevron-notched specimens The chevron notched four-point bend specimen provides a convenient method for measuring fracture resistance of very brittle materials which are difficult to precrack.

Owning the entire facility allows growth in machining of advanced ceramic material in wear and strength applications for any industry.
When you talk Ceramics around the dinner table, you know it’s a family affair.
Increasing automobile production is expected to fuel the overall demand for carbon composites in the near future.
