A term used to describe any ware made of clay.
A man-made solid produced by the fusion of mineral substances in a kiln. The term 'ceramic industry' or 'pottery industry' are subjective terms that can mean different things in different circles. In recent years the field of non-oxide ceramics has become popular, thus the term 'ceramics' now generally refers to thermally treated, non-metal, non-gaseous products like glass, sanitary ware, spark plugs, porcelain, abrasives, etc.
Refers to items made of clay, sand, etc. and then fired in a kiln. Includes pottery, china, glass, etc.
Objects made of clay hardened into a relatively permanent material by firing; Earthenware, porcelain or brick products produced from a non-metallic material and fired at a high temperature.
Materials. Of or relating to products, such as pottery, porcelain, or tile, that are made from nonmetallic mineral an object made of such a material. an object made of such a material.
an object made of clay that has been fired (baked hard)
Items, including tiles and pottery, made from clay and fired in a kiln.
A polycrystalline, inorganic material.
An object made from a non-metallic mineral like clay and hardened by firing at a high temperature.
An inorganic compound or mixture requiring heat treatment to fuse it inot a homogeneous mas usually possissing high temperature strenght but low ductility. Types and uses range from china for dishes to refractory liner for nozzles.
An earthenware product made by firing clay. A ceramic is usually a poor conductor of electricity.
a hard, strong compound made from clay or minerals
a polycrystalline, non-metallic, non-organic material, such as fired polycrystalline aluminum oxide, typically made by firing a compressed and shaped powder at high temperatures to fuse the powder together
A compound of metallic and nonmetallic elements.
The ceramic is a clay pot drum originating from Africa. It has a side hole which, when the bass is hit, produces deep, haunting tones. They were initially used in religious and cultural ceremonies.
A type of material characterised by a lack of regular molecular structure, great strength and resilience within its elastic limits and tolerance of extreme temperatures.
pertaining to products manufactured from inorganic, nonmetallic substances, which are subjected to a high temperature during manufacture or use
A non-metallic material made from clay and hardened by firing at a high temperature.Â Can be used in watch dials or bracelet.
Inorganic nonmetallic material such as alumina, beryllia, or fosterite, whose final characteristics are produced by treatment at high temperatures (and sometimes also under applied pressure), often used in microelectronics as parts of components, substrate, or package.
Term used somewhat generically to describe any of the various synthetic materials used for guide ring material.
is fired clay. It is hard, but breakable. The color is determined by the type of clay used as well as the glazes or stains used to finish the piece.
Having to do with the use of porcelain.
The term used to describe all kinds of fired clay products.
Any of various hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at a high temperature. The ceramic heating element self-regulates the heat output in case the air inlet is blocked. Cool touch cabinets provide additional safety.
inorganic, nonmetalllic products for which the interatomic bonding is predominantly ionic.
Inorganic, nonmetallic material, such as alumina, beryllia, or glass-ceramic, whose final characteristics are produced by subjection to high temperatures. Often used in forming ceramic-substrates for packaging semiconductor chips.
Any man-made solid produced by the fusion of mineral substances in a kiln. The term 'pottery' is used to refer to those individuals who fabricate their own ware using plastic clays of all types and at all temperatures ranges.
An artifact made of hard brittle material produced from nonmetallic minerals by firing at high temperatures.
A broad term for products such as pottery and bricks from heat resistant non-metallic, inorganic materials such as clay, bauxite, alumina, silica, magnesia, silicon carbide and the like.
An inorganic, nonmetallic material, such as alumina, beryllia, steatite, or forsterite, which is fired at a high temperature and is often used in electronics as a substrate or to create component packages.
the word "ceramic" is traced to the Greek term Keramos, meaning pottery or potter. Ceramics are defined as products made from inorganic, non-metallic materials with a crystalline structure, usually processed at a high temperature at some time during their manufacture.
Polycrystalline ferroelectric materials which are used as the sensing units in piezoelectric accelerometers. There are many different grades, all of which can be made in various configurations to satisfy different design requirements.
Any of various hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at a high temperature; an object, such as earthenware, porcelain, or tile, made of ceramic.
An object made of clay and then fired.
Ceramic is a material made by firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay.
Any of various hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by firing clay or other minerals and consisting of one or more metals in combination with a nonmetal, usually oxygen.
tile Flat or shaped pieces formed from earth materials (clay); the pieces are then fired to 1300ºF or more. Typically laid in rows to cover walls, floors, and roofs.
(from Greek word meaning ‘potter's clay') The challenge today in internal prosthetics is to develop materials that are stronger and more durable and much tolerable by the human body. The use of ceramic in hip prosthesis has a lot of research into it. The alternatives to traditional polyethylene materials used in total hip replacement arthoplasty include cross-linked polyethylene components and hard-on-hard bearings including metal-on-metal and alumina-on-alumina ceramic. When comparing hard-on-hard bearings, the ceramic-on-ceramic coupling has many theoretical advantages. Ceramic has extremely low coefficient of friction and a high potential for wear resistance and less debris, this translates into an artificial joint that is more close to the normal hip.
A general term referring to articles made of so-called earth materials i.e.: clay, sand, etc., processed by firing or baking. The classification includes pottery, earthenware, china, glass refractories and abrasives.
Any object made of clay and fired.
An inorganic substance composed of two or more elements, which is typically hard and brittle. Most ceramics are compounds of metals with non-metals; many are metal oxides.
Item made from clay or a claylike material.
The word ceramic is derived from the Greek word ÎºÎµÏÎ±Î¼Î¹ÎºÏŒÏ‚ (keramikos). The term covers inorganic non-metallic materials whose formation is due to the action of heat. Up until the 1950s or so, the most important of these were the traditional clays, made into pottery, bricks, tiles and are like, along with cements and glass.
