Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Wear and Corrosion

Ceramics are particularly hard and durable and are useful in a variety of wear and corrosion applications.

Glass is used in chemical processing because of its good corrosion resistance.

Examples include:

Drill-resistant plates

Low-cost alumina plates are used as anti-drill devices to protect locks and cash-containing equipment

Ball valves

Zirconia ceramic balls are used in the arduous down hole oil processing industry

Process equipment

Alumina plates are used as wear parts in automated welding equipment

Pump parts

Injection-molded ceramics are used as pump impellers in corrosive environments

Semiconductor processing

High-purity quartz glassware is used in semiconductor processing because of its corrosion resistance
