An important aspect of our work is the characterization of ceramic materials and components. The determination and knowledge of physical parameters under operating conditions provide important information for the evaluation of ceramic components with regard to quality and performance and form the basis of simulation calculations. We therefore offer you numerous test procedures – both according to international standards and customer-specific. In addition, we also carry out quality controls on your premises, for example for a new lining.

Reducing costs by using materials more efficient

The manufacturing sector in Germany is under great pressure to lower costs in order to stand up to international competition. Surprisingly; the biggest cost-factor – the cost of materials – is only rarely in the spotlight when it comes to
