Understanding the Benefits of Advanced Ceramic Materials for Withstanding Harsh Environment Applications
25 May 2021 11AM ET
Advanced ceramics are well suited to harsh environments given their ability to withstand high temperatures, various types of corrosion and can provide optical protection. This makes them the ideal material to act as a barrier between the harshest of elements and high value components. Advanced Ceramics can prevent damage to sensitive equipment, slow chemical and environmental corrosion and not lose its functional shape due to high temperatures. This session will feature a case study of harsh environments in space by the European Space Agency. The rest of the discussion will explore the benefits of advanced ceramics in meeting harsh environment application requirements of any sort. Attendance will help the audience to better understand the latest advancements and requirements in harsh environment application development.
Points to be discussed:
- Exploring the challenges of harsh environmental application development for key markets such as aerospace
- Learn how to effectively protect your product from extreme heat, radiation or chemical/environmental corrosion
- Determine the machinability of ceramic materials and how they may fit into you manufacturing process

Webinar: Weathering the COVID-19 Storm: Ensuring Business Continuity in the Advanced Ceramics Supply Chain
Tuesday May 26, 2020
As COVID-19 has swept the globe, global manufacturing has come to a near standstill and only essential businesses are allowed to operate. But what does this mean for the advanced ceramics industry? Gain valuable industry insight of how the advanced ceramic supply chain is responding and planning to overcome the challenges that COVID-19 has put on manufacturing industries. In this webinar, several industry experts, from a range of background including SMEs and global organizations, will discuss key findings of the Ceramics Expo industry survey.
Key questions to be addressed:
• How has the coronavirus outbreak impacted production capacity?
• Which business activities are being put on hold, which ones have become more important and what how have investment strategies changed?
• How are production lines being adapted to serve essential businesses and what constitutes an essential business?
• And what are the challenges in starting manufacturing up again after this period of severe disruption?
Webinar: Adding Value Through Design: Principles for Ceramic Additive Manufacturing
November 20, 2018
Additive manufacturing allows for more freedom in the design of a part, but at the same time requires a different design approach than more traditional forming methods. For example, manufacturing a part in the green state means that overhanging structures are tricky. In addition, working with ceramic printed materials poses unique processing challenges, such as shrinkage of the part during the sintering process, which can cause cracks or affect precision. Finally, each ceramic AM technology offers different design opportunities and limitations, such as the density of the part that can be achieved.
This webinar will investigate the design principles for ceramic additive manufacturing by looking at the following:
- Designing for ceramic AM: general and technology-specific design principles
- Current design limitations of ceramic additive manufacturing technologies
- Opportunities for ceramic AM to add value in the design process
Speaking companies include: University of Louisville and Boston Ceramics.
Webinar: Creating Market Pull - Identifying Industry Requirements for Ceramic Additive Manufacturing in High Temperature and Wear Resistant Applications.
February 22, 2018
This webinar investigates the opportunities for ceramic additive manufacturing in high temperature and wear resistant applications by looking at end-user industries such as automotive and their appetite for the technology; as well as their needs to support implementation and the industry’s response to these requirements.
The webinar will answer key questions including:
- Where are the opportunities for additive manufacturing in high temperature and wear resistant applications?
- What do end users need from supply chain (i.e. what challenges need to be overcome) to enable implementation of ceramic additive manufacturing?
- What is needed to enable a ceramic additive manufacturing supply chain?
- What can be done to create opportunities for this technology?
Speaking companies include: Lithoz GmbH, Delphi Technologies, Johnson Matthey
