Ceramics are one of the main reason why modern electronics work
Your modern day phone and computer devices probably rely on ceramic technology to function. The phone or tablet you are using to read this article will likely rely on a network of ceramic components such as resistors, capacitors and more. Ceramic technology is also used to insulate and protect electronic equipment stored outside. If it wasn't for ceramic technology, many of our devices would over heat, combust and you would not be able to read this article.
A Ceramic Tile Can Withstand the Weight of Several Elephants
It is common knowledge that ceramic and porcelain tiles are extremely strong, that is why they are the most profound flooring solution around the world.
Did you know that a ceramic tile can easily withstand the pressure over 500MPA. This number does not sound high but you can concert it to something we do understand, elephants per tile. A ceramic tile could withstand the weight of over 10 elephants without perishing. Now that is heavy.
A Ceramic Knife Stays Sharper than a Stainless Steel Knife
Ceramic materials are incredibly strong and durable. This means that the edge of a ceramic knife will stay sharp and useful for years to come, far more than a steel knife. The reason why steel is more prominent than ceramic knifes in residential application is because ceramic is more brittle than steel and may fracture when coming into contact with hard surfaces.
Ceramic Technology is over 25,000 Years Old
Ceramic tile technology can be recorded as far back at 25,000 BC when the Venus of Dolní Věstonice, was discovered in Moravia (in today’s Czech Republic).
Ceramic Tile Fairs Bring the Crowds
Ceramic tile fairs are a big thing around the world. Millions of people flock to tile conventions tos ee the latest in digital ink technology, ceramic tile technology and more.
Ceramic Technology Assists People to Walk and Eat
Ceramic technology has also been applied to the medical industry. Ceramic is now bio-engineered to fuse with bone and other body tissue with minimal risk of rejection. It has also been used in the dental industry to manufacture crowns.
Ceramics Save Lives
If ceramic material can withstand the weight and pressure of 10 elephants, surely they can protect humans as well. That is why armoured jackets, used by SWAT teams, the military and body guards contain ceramic materials to deflect and absorb the impact of high calibre rifle fire.
It's not rocket science, or is it?
Ceramic tile technology has also been noticed by the top rocket scientists and implemented into almost every space program. Ceramic is highly insulating and they are used to insulate the space shuttles and protect the equipment and personnel from outstanding temperatures.
Ceramics are also re-engineered into thermal protection systems in the exhaust cones of rockets.
More than One Million Tiles make up the Domes of the Sydney Opera House
The exterior of the iconic Sydney Opera House is covered with more than one million ceramic tiles, which even today are known as the “Sydney tile”.
