Ceramics and Sustainability

Although the potential of ceramics is still underestimated, it constitutes an excellent alternative to traditional materials, which have certain limitations that it compensates for excellently.

In fact, for a slightly higher initial cost, ceramics provide incomparable durability, which amply amortises the costs incurred in replacing commonly used materials.

Furthermore, in a context increasingly centred around the concept of sustainability, ceramics are a valuable ally, as their very long lifecycle makes it possible to reduce emissions while ensuring efficient and effective use of resources.

not just a resistant material

Its high resistance to wear, abrasion, high temperatures and corrosion make it suitable for many applications in a wide range of fields, including food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foundries and high-pressure pumps, as well as in the agricultural sector.

Not least, its ability to withstand extreme mechanical stress makes it a suitable and innovative material for the automotive and renewable energy sectors, as well as the aerospace industry.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that ceramics can be used as an insulator within electric resistors of various shapes and sizes, as it is one of the most suitable materials in the insulating field due to its high electrical resistance and low dielectric loss.


As ceramic is a biocompatible, wear- and corrosion-resistant and non-cytotoxic material, it is a valuable ally for the food industry. It is mainly used in dosing units, grinding bodies, homogenisers and dosing syringes, as it does not release any impurities and excludes the risk of contamination.


The high resistance of some ceramic materials to thermal shock, in particular aluminium titanate, together with their resistance to wear caused by chemical agents, combined with their low thermal conductivity and low wettability, make ceramics suitable for use in foundries. Our company supplies this sector with items such as riser and dosing tubes for melting furnaces, plugs for controlling the flow of melt, crucibles and cups for pouring molten metal into the mould, bushings, etc.


As ceramic is an inert, non-toxic, corrosion and wear-resistant material, and consequently does not release any impurities, it is ideal for applications in the cosmetics industry, particularly as long-life components for homogenisers, mixers, dosing systems and centrifugal pumps.


Technical ceramics embody the best solution in the field of micromilling powders for the production of pharmaceuticals, as well as in homogenisers for the production of pharmaceutical creams and vaccines, due to its high resistance to wear and corrosion, biocompatibility and non-toxicity. Our company supplies the industry with ceramic discs, rings and plates, as well as ceramic pistons and valves for homogenisers. All of these components, in addition to possessing all the properties seen above, also guarantee a longer service life of the systems.


Ceramic materials such as alumina enable the manufacture of pistons and nozzles for high-pressure pumps and systems, used in the agricultural sector for spraying and weeding fields, in e.g. diaphragm pumps and high and medium pressure pumps. What makes this material particularly suitable for agricultural applications are its resistance to wear, its exceptional performance at both high and medium pressures, its suitability for contact with acids and abrasives, its chemical inertness, and its long service life with little maintenance.
