ceramic brings purpose design home

You woke up to the quartz clock inside your home of stone, cement, and glass, washed in the tiled shower, breakfast in pottery cups, and bowls. You may have worked at a monitor (packed with ceramic electronic parts, such as microchips, condensers, or resistors) all day long before going home for a glass or two of wine, sipping dinner from the same pottery plates, and relaxing in front of a liquid-crystal TV (or Gorilla glass smartphone). \

The above illustration makes it clear that the use of ceramic in daily life is indispensable. The use of ceramics in the home has become so intrinsic to our lifestyle, yet we do not know about the types of ceramics and the classification of ceramics, nor do we bother to know how ceramics are made.

Our brief intro to all about ceramics will get all your questions answered.

Types of ceramic

Glass-ceramics

This is one of the many types of ceramics produced by manipulating crystallization, which has the same characteristics as glass with the toughness and strength of the ceramics. This ceramic is produced using state-of-the-art production processes that produce materials with incredible characteristics such as zero porosity, tensile stability, resilience, high temperatures, translucency.

Fired bricks

Sometimes, bricks are made by heating minerals similar to clay, and ceramics are considered to be sand. This pottery is prevalent in households. Based on their manufacture as well as composition, the properties of this ceramic vary widely. This ceramic is usually durable, porous, heavy, and can withstand higher temperatures.

Silicon

Silicon is also a common type of ceramic and, because of its chemical properties, is often considered superior. This ceramic is very plentiful since it makes up about 90% of the crust of the earth. Sand And clays are also based on silicon abide, which are used to produce common ceramics. For example, silica ceramic is used to manufacture fired bricks, and silicate materials are the kaolinite material used to make porcelain.

Use of ceramics at home

Tiles

Ceramic tiles protect our roofs, toilets, and kitchens. Ceramics can be glazed with various colors and printed with any style, so tiles can be customized to the tastes of different people. When glazed, they are durable and easy to wipe clean, which is ideal for kitchen or bathroom use.

Cookware

Most of the pots and crockery are made from ceramic. Ceramic is a staple material in the kitchen, from non-glazed to glazed, mortar and pestles to the mug that holds your tea. Ceramic knives have also become popular, becoming one of the toughest knives you can buy, but they are extremely lightweight.

Electronics

Ceramic insulators hold televisions. Computers have silicon chips and ceramic is often used to manufacture the electric motors in your vacuum cleaner or blender.

We have the potential to do things with ceramics that we might only have imagined of once. So the next time you ask yourself what material is good for your purpose, you can confidently choose ceramic.
