Welcome to our annual Ceramic Components Directory. To learn more about the typical performance characteristics of some ceramic materials, turn to the Material Properties Charts. While specific characteristics will vary by supplier - and, indeed, can often be tailored specifically to the application - these charts can provide some general guidelines regarding which type of ceramic material might be best suited to a particular function.
The January 2012 issue includes our exclusive annual Materials Handbook, a year-round reference tool that incorporates definitions and suppliers* for hundreds of different types of raw and manufactured materials.
Manufacturers in our industry have continued their innovation efforts despite trying economic times, and our annual R&D Lab Equipment and Instrumentation Directory is featured in our February 2012 issue to help that trend continue. Be sure to keep the directory handy when sourcing your R&D project needs.
