Surface Treatment

The high purity and extreme dielectric strength of our aluminum oxide enable efficient processes in the field of surface technology through very high voltages and a long electrode life.

Technical ceramics pick up where other materials leave off

Temperature-resistant, media-resistant, abrasion-resistant, extremely hard and bulletproof – technical ceramics from Schunk Ingenieurkeramik combine valuable characteristics like no other material. This allows us to offer solutions that set new standards for industrial applications. The internationally unique IntrinSiC® is our innovative production solution that allows components to be fabricated from silicon carbide by 3-D printing that were previously impossible due to their complexity and size. Together with our customers, we develop tailored, cutting-edge products for furnaces and plants, tribological systems such as pumps and compressors, and laboratory ceramics and ballistics protection.
