Ceramics Provide Perfect Cover In Ballistic Armour

Ceramics Provide Perfect Cover In Ballistic Armour

Over the years, ceramics have found their way into many specialised fields, but ballistic armour has to be one of the strangest. In the aftermath of World War II, the search to find new methods of reducing casualties became paramount, especially as the increasing development in rifles and guns, and more particularly their rate of… Continue Reading

CeramAlloy Ultra Hard High Performance Alumina Toughened Ceramic

CeramAlloy Ultra Hard High Performance Alumina Toughened Ceramic

Precision Ceramics has introduced the very hardest ceramic composite available to further enhance the range of specialist technical ceramics being manufactured ‘in house’ in Birmingham. CeramAlloy Ultra Hard  is an ultra-high-performance alumina/zirconia composite, Hot isostatically pressed for very high mechanical properties and enhanced reliability and with an excellent balance between bending strength, hardness and fracture… Continue Reading

Diamond Coated Boron Nitride

Diamond Coated Boron Nitride

Ultra Biotics have developed a new process to coat boron nitride with diamond by keying the diamond into the surface rather than laying it onto the surface. The new process addresses the problems associated with diamond coating on boron nitride and how to overcome them to produce an excellent pinhole free and well adhered diamond… Continue Reading

New Challenges For The Orange One

New Challenges For The Orange One

The development of a new composite is always a significant event and the production of a material that instead of marginally improving properties significantly increases them, is even more significant. CeramaZirc Ultra Tough was developed by Precision Ceramics following customer demand to meet some of the new challenges encountered in the oil and gas industry.… Continue Reading

BepiColombo is a… Continue Reading

Cutting It Fine With Ceramics – Specialist Blades For Industry & The Home

Cutting It Fine With Ceramics – Specialist Blades For Industry & The Home

Ceramic blades are a relatively new product. Developed for processes that originally required round rotating blades where down time to change them was an issue to the production line, the longer run time of ceramic blades improved efficiency. Ceramic blades in industrial processes developed, both in materials and complexity of design, spilling over into commercial… Continue Reading

Chicken & Egg – A Strange Parallel With Technical Ceramics

Chicken & Egg – A Strange Parallel With Technical Ceramics

Throughout history, philosophers and scientists have confronted the dilemma “which came first, the chicken or the egg”? To ancient philosophers, this problem was at the centre of their questions as to how the universe and life on planet earth began. Even more recently, scientists such as Stephen Hawking have argued that the egg came before… Continue Reading

Ultra High Vacuum – Invaluable To Science & Research

Ultra High Vacuum – Invaluable To Science & Research

In the second in a series of blogs, Geoff Randle, Precision Ceramics Business Director, reflects on the use of technical ceramics for ultra-high vacuum applications. “The first time I heard the expression ‘ultra-high vacuum’, I was sitting in a meeting looking at drawings dated 1963 and was asked if the parts in the drawing complied. Luckily… Continue Reading
