Silicates are materials composed generally of silicon and oxygen. It is the first technical ceramics developed to support early electrical technologies. Generally, Silicates are valuable for their good dielectric properties, resistance to thermal shock and high-temperature performance.
Silicate ceramic components are used in electronics and electrical engineering and act as electrical insulation infuses, circuit breakers, thermostats and lighting technology. The ability of silicate ceramic materials to provide thermal insulation is also utilized in heating, environmental and thermal engineering applications. Porous components are produced for the emission of fragrances and insecticides, as carriers for catalysts or for various applications in laboratories. Precision components for applications in measurement technology and products for laboratory use and mixed media complete.
