Ceramic Materials

Ceramic coatings are characterized by high hardness, wear resistance, chemical resistance and heat and electrical insulating properties. It is often the combination of two or three of these properties that makes the application of ceramic materials interesting. Only the impact and shock resistance is a point of attention due to the brittle character of ceramics. Frequently used oxides are aluminium oxide, chromium oxide, titanium oxide, zirconium oxide, optionally as mixed oxide. .
