Ceramics in use

Ceramics can be used in a variety of sectors, for example:

  • Architectural, residential, and general lighting applications require cost-effective cooling of high-power LEDs
  • Automotive ceramic heat sinks assist safety and comfort in vehicle engineering
  • In the transportation sector, thermal management is an important issue in lighting for airfields, aircrafts, cruise ships, and submarines
  • The electronics and telecommunications industries use ceramic heat sinks to cool thermally sensitive components and circuits
  • Ceramic technology has a range of applications in the energy and environmental sectors
  • Industrial filtration has a varity of applications; from liquid filtration with pore sizes in the range from 4 nm to 1 μm, via functional filters for capturing specific substances, to membrane emulsification
