Ceramic materials combine numerous properties: they are hard, heat and corrosion-resistant, light, biocompatible and electrically insulating or conductive – depending on the composition. That makes them an indispensable and extremely versatile material. Today we encounter ceramics everywhere – even when we don’t see them at first glance. We all know that the body of a spark plug is made of ceramic material, but did you know that ceramic plugs and insulators are also hidden in electric kettles and mobile phones?

Modern forming processes like ceramic injection moulding (CIM) are continuously opening up possibilities for new applications, such as in engine design and optical fibre technology.

Ceramic injection moulding opens up the possibility to use ceramics in applications that require complex geometries INMATEC Technologies GmbH produces the process-ready material for this, the ceramic feedstock.
