Ceramic technology – a unique material

Ceramic materials, or even just a ceramic coating, can serve as major problem solvers in many areas of modern industry. Because a ceramic-coated surface has properties that other materials cannot match. These coatings do not have anything in common with porcelain.

Due to their high resistance to wear and corrosion, machine components are increasingly being made entirely from ceramics. Ceramic materials have excellent mechanical and thermal stability and are highly resistant to almost all acids and alkalis.

Even existing surfaces can acquire these properties if they are subsequently coated with ceramics. In conjunction with nanotechnology, these coatings create surfaces that are able to repel water, dirt, grease, oil, acids and alkalis. The range of properties achievable is almost unlimited and can be individually tailored to specific manufacturing scenarios. Each coating is individually developed and tailored towards a specific problem.
