Ceramics for Laboratories, Research Centres and Universities
IPS Ceramics has a long history of working with laboratories, research centres, universities and manufacturers to produce hard-wearing, innovative items which facilitate the latest scientific advancements.
We offer a wide range of products including tiles, tubes, crucibles, boats, ignition trays, cleaving stones and more. Stable and unreactive, light and compact, and formable into highly intricate shapes, our materials are resistant to heat, electricity, wear, corrosion, shocks and more. No matter what you’re testing, we have the ceramic to help.
All of our products can be customised to fit your exact specifications – if you need a specific size or thickness, if you need them to withstand any particular tolerances, or if you need anything engraving on them, we have the capacity and expertise to do it.
If you have a difficult situation and need a strong solution, we are also able to offer an extensive consultation service. If you provide us with your requirements and specifications, we can design a bespoke ceramic solution, produce prototypes, manufacture the finished solution and distribute them directly to you.

Used to hold materials during tests. Non-reactive, excellent heat removal and strong electrical insulation.
An alternate type of tile. Alumina discs can be supplied either surface ground or as fired.
Thermally stable, high quality ceramic tubes, available with open and closed ends. Available in our Online Store
| Crucibles and Boats
Used to hold samples during tests. Suitable for use in high temperatures; can be highly customised to meet any criteria.
| Ignition Trays
Ignition trays are used in a wide variety of industrial processes and tests. Sizes up to 20cm long and 2cm deep are typical.
| Alumina Crucible
A compact and highly customisable modular system used to hold multiple small technical components during firing.
Strong, stable and versatile – resistant to heat, electricity, corrosion and wear.
Excellent thermal conductivity and electrical insulation.
A low density, porous material which can be easily machined into complex shapes.
Highly thermodynamically stable; extremely high mechanical strength.
Excellent electrical resistant properties and low dielectric loss, even at high temperatures.
Incredible strength and toughness, more comparable to most metals than the average ceramic.
