Ceramic Composites - New Opportunities

The need for advancing ceramic technology

The on-going advancement of high-temperature engines and industrial processes has strained the abilities of conventional materials. Stronger and longer-lasting materials must be found, not only for the end-products, but also for the tools used in the manufacturing processes.

CRYSTALOY(CxA) ceramic composites are ‘whisker reinforced’ for superior strength, durability and resistance to high-temperature stresses.
