Ceramics and Technical Ceramics
Traditional and Technical Ceramics are fast becoming the essential enabler for our modern, high-performance lifestyle. Their impressive combination of properties has seen them replace metals in key areas for high-tech consumer products, demanding engineering applications and in process equipment for aggressive conditions.
Ceramics offer many advantages over alternative materials, not least their excellent performance at elevated temperatures and high mechanical strengths. They are resistant to abrasion, corrosion and chemical attack, giving increased durability in extreme conditions. Compared to metals, technical ceramics are lightweight and electrically and thermally insulating.
Experts in Technical Ceramics
Established in its present form in 2009, IPS Ceramics evolved from the merger of several leading manufacturers of high-temperature ceramics, all bringing a bank of expertise. Today’s IPS team collectively boasts 250+ years of experience in ceramic technology, including design, material selection/specification and manufacturing. We can rapidly and expertly evaluate possible technical ceramic solutions for your specific application or a whole host of manufacturing, engineering and laboratory demands.
IPS collaborates with other quality manufacturers in both Europe and Asia to offer flexibility in production. Our technical ceramics are formed in a variety of ways (typically by extrusion, injection moulding, casting or pressing) so that components can be designed from the start to meet your specific needs.
Our Range of Technical Ceramics
Our technical ceramics range includes alumina, silicon carbide, steatite, aluminium nitride and zirconia. We can supply most technical ceramic materials if you have a particular requirement.
