Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials
, Boron Nitride Products, is a global leader in providing advanced material solutions using the unique properties of hexagonal Boron Nitride.
Meanwhile, IBIDEN has focused on its ceramic business and developed high-performance ceramic materials
, such as for diesel particulate filters (DPF), for the exhaust system of diesel engines.
Saint-Gobain's Ceramic Materials
unit employs nearly 6,400 at 65 plants in 18 countries making components for industrial markets, including grains and powders, ceramic components, refractories, speciality crystals and associated systems.
Int'l Symposium on Ceramic Materials
for Energy & Environmental Applications (9th: 2008: Shanghai, China) Ed.
It features a composite of polymer or ceramic material
British defence technology group Meggitt Plc announced on Monday (7 January) that it has agreed to acquire the Danish ceramic materials
manufacturer Ferroperm Piezoceramics A/S (Ferroperm) in a GBP10m cash deal.
With their chemical inertness, resistance to protein binding, and optical properties, proprietary ceramic materials
and coatings provide an ideal environment for microarray slides used in DNA and proteins analysis.
Critical to the proliferation of microwave communications was the discovery of a small number of ceramic materials
with special properties permitting them to be used as dielectric resonators and filters, thereby enabling them to function as "talking ceramics.
EDO will provide the complete sonar array including piezoelectric ceramic materials
, transducers, array frames and associated cable assemblies.
are required for electrical isolation, high temperature, corrosion or wear applications.
The use of chemical approaches to improve the processing, properties and performance of advanced ceramic materials
is a rapidly growing area of research and development.
Universal Ceramic Materials
is cutting 142 jobs with the closure of two UK operations.
Ceramic heater rolls use a second type of advanced resistance heating, consisting of a variety of ceramic materials
applied by thermal spray to the outer surface of the roll core.
It then compares the measured hardness of the ceramic materials
with that of a carbide and draws the conclusion that the higher hardness of ceramic material
means superior wear resistance.
Although the use of ceramic materials
raises the cost of clutch/brakes, durability and performance improve.
