Advanced ceramics: realizing the potential after ICACC19

Advanced ceramics are experiencing a boom. After attending ICACC19, an expo for researchers and industry professionals dedicated to the topic, we offer a peek inside the fascinating world of transparent and translucent ceramic composites.
Unlike conventional ceramics that we encounter in our daily lives, advanced ceramic materials are characterized by high purity, low porosity, and exceptionally small grain sizes.
Thanks to these properties, these materials find wide industrial and commercial application, from large machinery to highly resistant windows, to orthodontic brackets.

Vacuum sintering at extremely low pressures is the key to giving transparent ceramics their strength and translucence. Vacuum furnace sintering proves to be essential to that process.

Read more about this affordable, reliable, and exciting material and see if one of its many applications can transform your own production processes!
