The requirements for polishing technical ceramics

Ceramic is a non-metallic material used in many fields such as jewelry, watchmaking or tableware.

Technical ceramics, on the other hand, are mainly used in industrial markets such as the automotive, mechanical, medical or electronic industries…

In general, objects made of ceramic and HyCeram® by Invicon have a high mechanical strength and resistance to wear, making them durable but very difficult to polish.

Polishing technical ceramics or porcelain requires a specific know-how, well mastered by the polishers concerned.

EXTREM polishing compounds have been specifically developed to provide quality polishing in these difficult configurations.

The composition of the EXTREM polishing compounds and the consistency of the associated buffing mops will be key elements to obtain the desired surface finish and the expected level of productivity in manual and robotic polishing.
