Sample applications include antennas, feed-through insulators, headers, high-power receptacles, hybrid circuits, insulator rings and cylinders, insulating discs, micro-ceramic components, power grid tubes, power switches, sensors, traveling wave tubes, vacuum interrupters, windows, and X-ray tubes.
Advanced, high-purity aviation ceramics
CoorsTek provides advanced, high-purity ceramics for high-technology applications, including aircraft and aviation uses. Our engineering experts can help you choose the best material from hundreds of aluminas, carbides and other high-performance materials.
Microelectronic ceramic components for aircraft
High alumina and other ceramics are used for active and passive electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, hybrid circuits, sensors and other critical devices. These devices are used in aircraft and automotive electronics, telecommunications, medical devices, computers, and a large variety of electronic instruments and consumer appliances.
Ceramics lend themselves to forming processes that yield intricate shapes and sizes. These parts are used as substrates and lids in microelectronic applications. These processes offer high-volume, cost-effective answers to the world’s competitive electronics market.
Well-suited for harsh operating conditions, ceramics are thermally and structurally stable. CoorsTek also provides value-added services to ensure optimal value and performance.
Ceramic aircraft-armor panels
We provide some of the lightest armor components known to man by developing specialty materials and processes for superior ballistic performance with minimal weight addition. Typical ceramic composite armor systems, at approximately half the weight, outperform similar steel-based systems. These systems can be used as ceramic armor panels for aircraft.
Our CeraShield™ ceramics offer many advantages over conventional materials. These specially formulated ceramic armor materials provide:
- Low weight
- High hardness
- Controlled, uniform microstructures
Our ceramic aircraft-armor panels have proven ballistic performance that meets National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and international design standards.
