Porous Ceramics

Superior Technical Ceramics has developed Porous Ceramics for use in filtration, diffusion, separation and purification applications. Uniquely porous, these ceramic materials contain open-cell structures that allow the free flow of liquid or gas. Porous ceramics can replace metal, plastic, or fiber-based components, providing equal or higher levels of performance and extending the useful component life under harsh conditions.

Porous Ceramics have a wide range of uses in manufacturing across industries such as medical, mining, oil & gas exploration, alternative energy, emissions control, metal refinement, chemical processing, pharmaceutical, printing, wine making and other industries. Specific applications include instrumentation, analytical sensors, semiconductor components, alternative energy assemblies, battery separators, and emissions monitoring sensors, among many others.

We fabricate and utilize aluminum oxide in a proprietary manufacturing process that allows us to tailor the porosity, pore size and permeability to suit the customer's application. These materials have tunable properties allowing mean pore sizes ranging from 20 to 500 nanometers and 10 to 50% porosity to match your technical needs. Learn more here.

With the ability to withstand a pH range of 2 - 10, continuous use up to 1500° C, high erosion resistance, and strengths from 500 to 20,000 psi (dependent on porosity), STC's porous ceramics may be the answer to your severe application requirements.
