A material with a great potential
Porous ceramics are increasingly used in environmental and process technology in material segregation, material mixing and as a catalyst support.
Compared with filter materials made of metal or plastic, porous ceramics have numerous advantages. They are heat-resistant, corrosion-resistant, especially against acids, and have an excellent abrasion resistance.
With such a feature profile, new applications are continually being found for porous ceramics.
Porous ceramics with varying distribution of pore sizes are used, depending on usage and requirements.
Its basis is formed by aluminium oxide or cordierite.
