Brief Introduction of Metallization Ceramics

Brief Introduction of Metallization Ceramics

Advanced ceramics are widely used in electronics and engineering applications for their chemical and mechanical properties. Compared to metals, they are stronger in compression, especially at higher temperatures. Advanced ceramics have good thermal stability (i.e., a low coefficient of thermal expansion) and good thermal and electrical resistance. They are also hard and have excellent dimensional stability.metallized ceramic for vacuum interrupter

As a result, the list of applications for advanced ceramics is including aerospace engine blades, rings and valve components, industrial pump bearings, cutting tools and die parts, medical instruments, and wide uses in the electronics industry as a substrate and in specialized vacuum components.

Metallization ceramics is a famous coating technology in advanced ceramics. They are commonly used in many applications, for example, in power electronics components placed under extreme load, electrical drive engineering, and electrical engineering as well as in electronic components for computer technology.
