Three critical factors determine the success of any new material technology: material properties, design practices (i.e., how to properly use and apply the material) and a supply chain that can produce the material at specification.
Silicon nitride (Si3N4) and silicon carbide (SiC) systems have been used in industry for many years, and both systems have a range of properties that make them excellent choices in a number of demanding environments.

Specialty ceramic cements are directly relevant to our lives, but we rarely notice their presence. The important physical characteristics of these cements include the capacity to deal with temperature changes varying from ambient temperature up to 3000°F (1650°C) and higher, depending on the specific case.
Carbon is one of the earliest known elements. It was used by the Egyptians and Sumerians in the form of charcoal around 3750 B.C. for the reduction of copper, zinc, and tin ores in the manufacture of bronze.
