About

Scope

Standardization in the field of fine ceramics materials and products in all forms: powders, monoliths, coatings and composites, intended for specific functional applications including mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, magnetic, optical and combinations thereof. The term "fine ceramics" is defined as "a highly engineered, high performance, predominantly non-metallic, inorganic material having specific functional attributes."

Note:

Alternative terms for fine ceramics are advanced ceramics, engineered ceramics, technical ceramics, or high performance ceramics.
