High-performance ceramics: the material for
innovative eMobility solutions

HIGH-PERFORMANCE CERAMICS*:
POWERFUL FOR EMOBILITY

•  Electrical insulation
•  High dielectric strength
•  Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
•  Freedom from partial discharge
•  High thermal conductivity
•  Corrosion resistance
•  Thermal insulation
•  High heat resistance
•  Low friction
•  Chemical resistance
•  Impact resistance
•  Wear resistance
•  Low weight
•  UV resistance
•  Resistance to temperature shock
• Transparency

The development towards electrification and eMobility pre-
sents growing challenges for automotive manufacturers,
suppliers, energy producers, infrastructure partners and the
manufacturing industry. The further development of alter-
native drive technologies and new systems for production,
storage, transmission and distribution of energy has to be
pursued at full speed. The electrical infrastructure for mobile
and stationary applications has to be created. These complex
tasks require materials which meet extreme requirements.
Innovative high-performance ceramics from CeramTec provide
a crucial contribution to progress:

•   Together with customers, we develop technical ceramics

solutions which have unique functionalities and a
customised characteristics profile to allow visionary
concepts.

•   They are superior where conventional materials such as

metal and plastic reach their limits.

•   They support more environmental protection, economic

efficiency, safety, durability and user comfort.

•   They provide more efficiency and productivity in

manufacturing  processes.

•   They are hard to replace in many applications, such as

electrified transport vehicles, charging stations, energy
generation, energy storage and energy distribution.

•   Solutions from CeramTec cover the entire range of

eMobility applications: from cars, eBikes, Segways and
eMotorcycles to aeroplanes and other electrically driven
mobility solutions – on land, on water and in the air.

Fields of application for high-performance ceramics
Technical ceramics from CeramTec are used in numerous
areas of application: In sensor systems, our sensor compo-
nents capture and process a variety of values with high pre-
cision. In power electronics, ceramic high-performance
materials and solutions meet a variety of requirements with
a high level of reliability, even under immense demands. For
temperature management, high-performance ceramics from
CeramTec ensure optimum thermal dissipation and insula-
tion. For fluid and gas regulation, ceramic components from
CeramTec help to ensure a high level of reliability. Our tech-
nical ceramics play a key role wherever electrical insulation is

required. In all types of bearings, our solutions play out their
strengths in the long term. Our materials exhibit immense
resistance in the handling of aggressive media. Whether
innovative design solutions, lightweight design concepts and
miniaturisation, material reinforcement, applications in
sound management or efficient production processes – the
unique range of properties of high-performance ceramics
from CeramTec offers crucial added value and benefits in all
these areas.
