ceramic materials


IPS Ceramics is based in Stoke-on-Trent, a city that has been a key player in the pottery and ceramics industry for over 300 years. Known across the world as ‘The Potteries’, we are proud to have forged a close connection with these industries spanning over 60 years.

Now, as a world-renowned company, we supply kiln furniture and other products to the ceramics industry across the globe.

Silicon Carbide, Cordierite & Technical Ceramics

IPS Ceramics offers several types of materials for the firing of ceramics products. This includes cordierite based and silicon carbide-based kiln furniture, alongside a full range of technical ceramics. Each material brings its own strengths to the table to allow for consistency in firing. However, the very best performance is often achieved by using a combination of products. Particularly when, working together, they meet the specifications required for the ceramics involved.

Ceramic Applications

We offer one of the widest ranges of kiln furniture and technical ceramics. All of which are suitable for application in ceramics industries. These include:

  • Tableware
  • Bone China
  • Sanitaryware
  • Furnaces
  • Incinerators
  • Fuel Cells
  • Heat Treatment
  • Annealing
  • Powder Metal

Our long-standing reputation in the creation of kiln furniture means we understand the challenges and production issues faced in the creation of ceramics. With these in mind, we manufacture products such as kiln shelves, batts, props, beams, and silicon carbide structures for kiln cars. These are all cost-effective and resilient enough to be used time and time again in the kiln.
