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

Precision Ceramics Introduce Their Toughest Composite

Precision Ceramics Introduce Their Toughest Composite

Following a period of intense in-house development, Precision Ceramics has introduced a new ultra-high fracture toughness zirconia composite to its already wide and comprehensive portfolio of materials. Nicknamed ‘The Orange One’, CeramaZirc Ultra Tough is an advanced zirconia-based ceramic composite material based on partially stabilised zirconia and alumina platelets and is the latest and toughest… Continue Reading

Technical Ceramics Journey Deeper Into Space

Technical Ceramics Journey Deeper Into Space

Having successfully designed and manufactured a series of highly technical ceramic components which have been used in spacecraft visiting Mars, Mercury and Saturn, the close association of Precision Ceramics with space exploration has taken another giant leap forward with the latest mission to the smallest and innermost planet in the Solar System. 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

Precision Ceramics Quality Manager Reaches New Heights

On Saturday 18th August, an army of volunteers from the international charity ‘Your Seva’ assembled in the early morning dew and mist of the Snowdonia National Park ready to trek to the top of Wales’ highest mountain. Among them were Precision Ceramics Quality Manager, Prubhjyot Singh, and his younger brother, Gobind, who, like the other… 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

Ceramic Balls – The Answer To An Engineer’s Prayers!

Ceramic Balls – The Answer To An Engineer’s Prayers!

Geoff Randle, Precision Ceramics Business Director, reflects on the early applications for ceramic balls … “I first came across a ceramic ball race many years ago when I was handed one which had broken into several pieces! The failure of this assembly should have pointed to limitations in the material but as it came from… Continue Reading

Aluminium Nitride Comes of Age

Aluminium Nitride Comes of Age

Aluminium Nitride has long been regarded as the best option to use when alumina substrates cannot meet the stringent demands of high thermal conductance for electronics. Prized for its electrical insulation and offering thermal conductance of between 7 and 8 times that of alumina, the vast majority of the world’s aluminium nitride is supplied in thin… Continue Reading
