Technical Ceramics: The Powerhouse of Advanced Materials


The automotive landscape is evolving at an unprecedented rate, and technical ceramics are poised to assist in shaping the future. Technical ceramics are inorganic ceramic materials whose combination of unique material properties makes them the right choice for electric and hybrid vehicle applications when other materials fail. These high-performance materials open up new possibilities for mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering solutions and are showing up in a growing number of electric and hybrid vehicle applications.

This 60-minute Webinar examines how technical ceramics outperform metals and polymers as well as where they are being used in cutting-edge automotive applications. Technical ceramics and their unique material properties are unfamiliar to many technical professionals in the automotive community. This presentation is ideal for design engineers looking for new material sets to improve performance in systems where strength, durability, extreme temperature, electrical insulation, corrosion resistance, and other demands are persistent factors. The presentation material also allows attendees to make inferences into other mobility markets, such as two-wheeler, mass transit, heavy truck, off-highway, and specialty vehicle.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
