ACM offers several standard ceramic materials available that may meet the needs of its customers.
Alumina (Al2O3) - Alumina is a versatile ceramic that is a work horse in the industry. If offers substantial wear and chemical stability. It is an excellent electrical insulator and low loss dielectric suitable for electro-magnetic applications.
Alumina Toughened Zirconia (ATZ) Grade: ATZ 1 HP - ATZ is ACM's latest high strength ceramic material that offers extraordinary strength on par with the best state of the art materials. It combines that hardness of alumina with the strength and toughness of zirconia ("ceramic steel").
Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) Grade: A34HP - Silicon nitride is a covalently bonded solid that offers a desirable combination of high strength, toughness, and hardness that are stable at high temperatures. In addition, it is very resistant to thermal shock. Combined with its low density, it is an attractive engineering material of interest for many applications (e.g. wear, engine, pump, cutting tool, biomedical, radomes)
Zirconia (ZrO2) Grade: 3YSZ - Zirconia's offer the highest strength and toughness of all monolithic ceramics. Many zirconia's structural advantages arise from its transformational toughening which lead to its nickname "ceramic steel."
Other In addition to its standard materials, ACM also offers the ability to produce many other conventional and exotic/custom ceramic compounds. Such as: Silicon Carbide (SiC), SIALON, Aluminum Nitride (AlN), Zirconia (ZrO2), Zirconium Diboride (ZrB2), Titanium Diboride (TiB2), Titanium Nitride (TiN), Tantalum Carbide (TaC), Alumina TiCN, ZrB2-SiC Composites
