FAQ

Does Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories work with customers with no prior history of using ceramics?

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories frequently works with customers who have not used ceramics previously.

The company’s teams of experienced engineers will conduct a comprehensive review of all aspects of a system application, asking questions and performing a thorough evaluation to ascertain if a customer could utilize ceramics or a related material (even if Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories does not currently manufacture this).

A reliable, cost-effective, and robust solution is likely possible in every scenario.

How well do ceramics perform in impact zones?

Impact is a very general term. More specifically, ceramics have very limited flexibility, with tension causing cracks or breakages.

Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories specifically designs ceramic materials to eliminate or reduce these characteristics, ensuring excellent performance.

What does a wear audit typically entail?

A typical wear audit will either target part of the system or the entire system. Data collected includes process/operations information, wear history for each component, and wear life. A mutual NDA can be signed if required.

Review drawings and a written summary of each component evaluated are provided to the customer, along with a series of recommendations for improvement.
