TECHNICAL CERAMICS: FEATURES AND ADVANTAGES.
The term technical ceramics includes a large group of inorganic, non-metallic, extremely hard. It includes both combinations of single elements and combinations of oxides, carbides and nitrides. These elements are among the most widespread in the planets crust (Si, Al, Mg) and atmosphere (N2-O2).
Bettini manufactures technical ceramics in many different materials: aluminium oxide, titanium oxide, zirconium oxide, zirconium-toughened aluminium oxide, aluminium titanate, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, boron carbide.
The advantages offered by ceramic materials compared with conventional materials are:
From textile machinery to spacecraft, advanced medicine and antipollution applications, there are no activities or places in which advanced ceramic applications are not exploited.
