Technical ceramics covers a wide range of advanced ceramic materials developed for their excellent mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. They are often highly resistant to melting, bending, stretching, corrosion and wear. The use of advanced ceramics in aerospace, automobile, defence and energy markets is becoming increasingly widespread.
Carbolite furnaces are widely used in both research and production for the debinding and sintering of technical ceramics. For the debinding process (of green parts) lower temperature chamber furnaces with excellent temperature uniformity are required. The brown parts are subsequently sintered at up to 1800°C in a high temperature furnace.
