Wear Resistant Technical Ceramics


HTI offers C-TUFF™ press-ready engineered blends of alumina and C-TUFF™ silicon carbide microfibers for use in difficult situations where metals and other materials fail.  Harsh chemical environments, highly abrasive situations, and high temperature situations are no match for these materials.

C-TUFF™ excels in dynamic operating environments requiring very high temperature stability.  In these environments, its fracture and impact resistance far exceeds other ceramic materials commonly used today.

HTI offers a variety of materials products for wear resistant ceramics:

For most wear applications, HTI recommends C-TUFF™ CT-8 dry-press ready powder.  For applications requiring utmost fracture resistance, such as in ceramic cutting tools, C-TUFF™ HA9S may be considered.
