Application of Ceramic Screws for Electric Insulation, Chemical Resistance and Chemical Stability

SCERAM develops a wide range of ceramic nuts, ceramic screws, and ceramic washers and offers high quality Zirconia Oxide screws and high purity Alumina 99,7% screws with different heads. SCERAM employs a unique machining technique to produce ceramic screws and offers M series (from M2 to M10) screws with washers and nuts.

Electric Insulation

In majority of electric and electronic products, it is important to ensure that screws utilized for fixing are not affected by magnetism and electric current. SCERAM offers ceramic screws that are made of Alumina to provide excellent electric insulation properties. Figure 1 shows a flat head, pan head, and hexagon head ceramic screws.

Heat Resistance

In the energy field with solar cells and fuel cells, Alumina ceramic screws are utilized in nuclear reactors for their excellent electric insulation and heat resistance properties.

Chemical Resistance

In the physical and chemical fields, such as chemical synthesis and pharmaceutical manufacturing, components of equipment and vessels must have good chemical resistance to acid and alkali. In addition, strength retention and chemical stability at elevated temperatures are also required. SCERAM’s ceramic screws are widely used by the development departments and research organizations of companies across the globe.

Chemical Stability

High chemical stability characteristics are important in the processing of liquid crystals and semiconductors. Other qualities required are magnetic resistance, stability of chemical substances with minimal leaching, magnetic resistance, and strength retention under harsh processing conditions. SCERAM’s ceramic screws are extremely popular as they satisfy all these conditions.

Living Affinity

Ceramics exhibit characteristics of living affinity, and hence research organizations use SCERAM’s ceramic screws in surgical procedures for fixing bones. The screws are also being used in a number of dental research organizations.

Conclusion

SCERAM offers a range of ceramic nuts, ceramic screws, and ceramic washers that have electric insulation characteristics, superior heat resistance, and excellent chemical stability. These aspects make the products suitable for a variety of markets and applications.
