High-performance ceramics – The material of our time Components made of high-performance ceramics, optimally designed to meet the extreme demands set by modern industrial clients, are the mainstay of our portfolio. The mechanical, thermal and electrical properties enable us to provide brilliant solutions for innumerable sectors and for the most varied tasks: Chemical: Optimum corrosion resistance without compromise Mechanical: Exceptional hardness and abrasion resistance High pressure and bending strength, even at higher temperatures Thermal: Extremely high application temperatures Good thermal conductivity Elektrical/Physical: High electrical volume and surface resistance High electrical strength Low dielectric losses at high frequencies Low neutron absorption cross-section Detailed information on the following materials can be found in the download area on the right: Aluminium Oxide (Al2O3) Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2) Silicon Carbide (SiC) Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) The successful use of ceramic materials greatly relies on a careful evaluation of the complex material properties. Based on experience gained over many years in the field of ceramics and requirement profiles discussions are held with our customers regarding selection of materials. The application engineers at FRIATEC AG view jointing techniques for ceramic components as a major factor in ensuring a sound and stable solution. This is why sintering, gluing, clamping and shrinking are included during design of the components and also, if necessary, in the production process. Everything from just one source: from powder processing and various moulding techniques to high-precision final machining. This means optimum tuning of all stages in the production process. The strictest standards of quality control ensure the very highest levels of quality.
