High durability applications benefit from ceramics because they are extremely hard and resistant to scratching and wear.

Resistant to Heat
Ceramics are able to withstand intensely high temperatures without degradation, making them ideal for applications involving high heat exposure.

Chemical Stability
Ceramic materials have a high resistance to chemical corrosion, meaning they won’t degrade upon exposure to these chemicals. This makes them a particular popular choice for applications require longevity in harsh chemical environments.

Electrical Insulation
Ceramics are useful in electrical components because they are electrical insulators, meaning they prevent electrical conductivity.

A biocompatible material does not cause any harmful effects when it is in contact with the body. Because certain ceramics are biocompatible, they are ideal for using in different medical applications because they won’t cause adverse reactions.


Typical Uses of Ceramic

These unique properties make ceramic suitable for use in a range of different industries. Let’s take a look at some of its typical uses…

Household Items
Because of its durability and overall aesthetic appeal, ceramic is the go-to material for common household items including plates, mugs and tiles.

Industrial Applications
Because of its hardness and resistance to wear, ceramic is often used in industrial settings for components, these include bearings, seals and cutting tools.

Because of its lightweight nature and excellent heat resistance, ceramic is used in the aerospace industry for engine components and thermal shields.

Thanks to its electrical insulating properties, ceramic is used in the electronics industry for insulators, capacitors and substrates for integrated circuits.

Because of their biocompatible nature, ceramic materials are used throughout the medical field for things such as dental crowns, prosthetics and implants.


Applications of Laser Engraving Ceramic

Home Décor

From laser engraved mugs to delicately marked dinner plates, laser technology can be utilised to transform everyday home décor into something extraordinary.

Industrial Marking

Ceramic components can be marked or engraved with serial numbers and other essential information for traceability purposes. This will aid in quality control and ensures the readability of codes even in harsh environments where traditional marking methods may wear with time.

Medical Devices

Laser engraving is used in the medical industry to mark ceramic implants and devices with important identification codes, this method of marking ensures that the integrity of the material isn’t compromised.

Branding and Customisation

Tiles, mugs, plates and coasters are ideal for engraving with brand logos, names and unique designs to increase brand awareness.
