An important aspect of our work is to characterize ceramic materials and components. The determination and knowledge of physical and chemical parameters of the respective material is decisive. The application can be simulated in advance and the suitability tested. This allows statements to be made about the expected service life, Link quality assurance and the behaviour under difficult conditions.

In addition, knowledge of the characteristics of a material in the assessment of damage, cracks and fractures is very important to get a comprehensive picture of the damage and its cause.
