From the technical point of view ceramic materials are especially advantageous for application in the chemical and process engineering. They demonstrate a high strength at high temperatures and are resistant to wear and corrosion. In fact they surpass all metal materials when it comes to resistance to corrosion.
Ceramic bodies are used during the chemical process of material separation (absorption, desorption, extraction), as well as in numerous full-scale technical reactions. In many other areas, however, it is no longer possible for industry to do without components made of technical ceramic e.g.
One of the oldest applications of technical ceramic is laboratory porcelain. Products from specially developed materials serve the industry and research establishments as aids during chemical analysis and dissecting work.
