Advanced Ceramic Components

Our Advanced Ceramic Components Division, H.C. Starck Ceramics GmbH in Selb (Germany), produces advanced ceramic powders, blanks, and components to customer specifications, in unique quality.

Technical ceramics, also known as high-performance or engineering ceramics, are inorganic ceramic materials whose combination of physical and thermal properties makes them the right choice for applications where other materials fail. They open up new possibilities for mechanical and plant engineering, foundries, automotive manufacturing, textile manufacturing, electronics, and medical technology.

Technical ceramics are nonmetallic and offer many benefits, including lower density than steel, high chemical resistance, hardness and strength, and very good resistance to thermal shock. Especially in applications involving wear, corrosion, and high-temperature challenges, ceramic components provide a longer service life and sustained cost-efficiency in processes.
