Scimarec Ceramic Technology Offers Materials to Suit Customers Needs

July 25th, 2013 - Posted by Admin

The types of materials Scimarec Ceramic Technology uses to manufacture its products include alumina, mullite, zirconia and sialon, depending upon the customer’s requirements. Alumina is a chemical resistant hard metal capable of withstanding high temperatures in extreme conditions. Mullite is an oxide that retains its strength at high temperatures and offers maximum resistance to thermal shock. Zirconia has excellent corrosion resistance at temperatures exceeding the melting point of alumina. Sialon contains aluminum and oxygen in a solid solution to give it the strength, hardness and thermal shock resistance of silicon nitrate and the corrosion resistance of alumina.
