Ceramics are collected compounds of metal and non-metal materials and may be fully crystalline or partly crystalline in nature. They are distinguished as hard, brittle, weak in impact and tension and strong in compression. These test materials are also opposed to both very high temperatures and corrosion and are designed to conduct electricity. Ceramics are used in various applications, mainly in industries that require materials to bear substantial compressive strength or powerful heat exposure for an extended period of time.
Hence, it is necessary to test the quality of the ceramics, before using the material for producing final goods. Ceramic testing helps to determine whether they are suitable for a particular application or not. This test procedure involves a test procedure to measure various mechanical and physical properties of a material. These properties include hardness test, yield strength, tensile strength, ultimate strength, flexural strength, compressive strength and fracture resistance. With the knowledge of these mechanical properties, the behavior of the ceramics can be predicted easily, and it helps to conclude whether the material will pass or fail.
On the other hand, Glass is a non-crystalline solid material which is typically brittle in nature. It is used for producing bottles, windows, eyewear. These items are made up of different types of glass materials, namely, acrylic glass, borosilicate glass, soda-lime glass, Muscovy-glass, sugar glass. The term glass comprises amorphous solids which include resins and plastics. Presto Stantest offers an extensive range of ceramics and glass testing instruments to meet various testing requirements. All our test equipment and related accessories are designed and engineered as per both industrial standards and customer’s specifications.
