Engineered Ceramic Metallographic Preparation
Specimen Preparation (Class 10 Procedures)
Metallographic Class 10 sample preparation  

Description:

Tough engineering ceramics such as silicon nitride and zirconia continue to find industrial applications where strength or wear resistance is required, oftentimes at relatively high operating temperatures.

Preparation Challenge:

Engineering ceramics are very hard, therefore specimen preparation procedures generally use a CMP (chemical mechanical polishing) component to remove induced microstructural damage.

Examples:
ENGINEERED CERAMIC PROCEDURES
Zirconia
