Ceramics

Ceramics

Ceramics are created by combining clay with additives and water and modelling it into the desired shape. After this, it is heated at high temperatures in an oven or cooker, after which the end product is created after cooling. Ceramic materials are hard and fragile and can absorb high compression forces, but at the same time break easily.

Applications of ceramics

Ceramics was originally used for pottery and porcelain tools, but newer technologies also use ceramic materials for a variety of applications. For example, ceramic tiles are used as the outer shell for space shutters because they can absorb the extreme temperatures that occur when they return to the atmosphere. Ceramics are also used in other aerospace, electrical engineering and even dental implants and bone replacements.
