Hypersonic speed and ultra-high temperature ceramics

Hypersonic speed and ultra-high temperature ceramics

The history of speed shows the greatest ingenuity, in developing from a single horsepower to some of the mightiest machines traveling at the greatest velocities. Speed has always required cutting edge technology to continue breaking the constraints, to allow us to move faster, in a whole range of environments. Ceramics have enabled the manufacture of… Continue Reading

Zirconia (ZrO2) – The Ceramic Steel

Zirconia (ZrO2) – The Ceramic Steel

High Strength Zirconia -The Ceramic Steel Unlike traditional ceramics that tend to be hard and brittle, Zirconia (ZrO2) has high strength, wear resistance and a flexibility far beyond those of most other technical ceramics. Zirconia (ZrO2) also has excellent corrosion and chemical resistance without the characteristic technical ceramic property of absolute brittleness. It has the… Continue Reading

Midlands Industrial Ceramics Group receives £18.27 million investment to power forward the region’s capabilities in advanced ceramics for transformative applications

Midlands Industrial Ceramics Group receives £18.27 million investment to power forward the region’s capabilities in advanced ceramics for transformative applications

The Midlands Industrial Ceramics Group (MICG) has secured £18.27 million in government funding provided through UK Research and Innovation’s flagship Strength in Places Fund (SIPF), to put the midlands firmly on the map as a global centre for advanced ceramics. Precision Ceramics Ltd has been a founder member of MICG since inception alongside other global… Continue Reading

DuraWear – A Boron Carbide and Silicon Carbide hybrid

DuraWear – A Boron Carbide and Silicon Carbide hybrid

Durawear is an engineered high quality ceramic composite, made from a hybrid of Boron Carbide (B4C) and Silicon Carbide (SiC). Durawear has hardness levels approaching that of Boron Carbide (one of the hardest materials on the planet) but with a fracture toughness of over double that of Boron Carbide. Using a combination of Silicon Carbide and Boron Carbide… Continue Reading

Mast Upgrade makes nuclear fusion commercially viable

Mast Upgrade makes nuclear fusion commercially viable

The commercial use of fusion reactors is moving forward with critical research being carried out in the U.K. at the MAST (mega amp Spherical Tokamak). The research carried out here will be fed directly into the new giant ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) in France. The critical area for commercialising nuclear fusion as a low… Continue Reading

Thermally Conductive Ceramics

Thermally Conductive Ceramics

Thermal conductance in Ceramics, the science of keeping cool! The use of ceramics in high thermal conductivity applications is a growing specialist market. The use of oxide ceramics is the most common as the base material cost is cheaper but the majority of materials are limited to 26-30 W/M/K, which when compared to the two… Continue Reading

Aluminium Nitride (AlN) vs Machinable Aluminium Nitride (Shapal Hi-M Soft)

Aluminium Nitride (AlN) vs Machinable Aluminium Nitride (Shapal Hi-M Soft)

The increasing use of AlN or Aluminium Nitride in power electronics, dissipating heat and providing electrical insulation has been an ongoing trend. The performance of Aluminium Nitride far outstrips Aluminia in some critical areas, but the added cost of manufacturing AlN is a limiting factor. The changeover from Aluminia to AlN takes you from a… Continue Reading
