Industrial ceramics and refractories
Refractories are materials that can withstand high temperatures and are essential in a variety of high-temperature industrial processes – including manufacture of ceramics, steel, glass, cement and chemicals. Novel refractory materials help reduce the energy used in all these industries.
Advanced ceramics are now used in a whole range of high-tech products including computers, jet engines, lasers, x-ray equipment, radar, water purification, thermal imaging devices and artificial joints.
