Drying is a necessary step in the processing of all ceramic products and components, whether it takes place as a separate step or is a preliminary step in the firing process. Ceramics are made from different combinations of materials that can be in slurry form or even more liquid, in the case of slip-cast ware at the start of the fabrication process.
A new line of kiln furniture suited to the production of catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters was introduced at Ceramics Expo 2017.
May 1, 2017
Ceramics Expo 2017 was chosen for the launch of a new range of kiln furniture from Morgan Advanced Materials. Suited to the production of catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPFs), Halsic-N is a nitride-bonded silicon carbide with a microstructure that offers increased mechanical strength and greater durability than the typical materials used for firing honeycomb structures.
Industry participants from around the world are set to head to Cleveland, Ohio, from April 25-27.

The ceramic industry continues to evolve, and ceramics are now the material of choice in many of today’s processes, industries, and developmental projects. In addition to offering a unique blend of material, mechanical, and chemical properties, the more ceramics are studied and experimented with, the more adaptable they seem to become.
