Category Summary

This class of ceramics combine common crystalline ceramics proprties with one or more a-typical properties like superconductivity, high transparancy or low brittleness. These properties are either a result of the materials composition or chemical or heat treatment, which stabilizes the materials structure (partially).

Category Details


In general these materials are specialty products, engineered for specific purposes. Therefore their properties can differ significantly. This makes it impossible to list their common properties. A materials properties depend on composition and treatment applied.
