The Right Materials for Your Application
CerCo manufactures a variety of high-purity ceramic materials in two IS0 9000-certified Ohio facilities. We are a leading worldwide supplier of wear-resistant ceramics, offering solutions for abrasion and corrosion problems for more than six decades, on six continents.
Our solutions are based on your application parameters: types of abrasion, system and equipment design, operating temperatures and materials. CerCo's fine-grained aluminas, silicon nitride bonded silicon carbide, silicon nitride and zirconia compositions offer properties that will optimize the solution for any wear application.
Alumina Standard Tile
CerCo offers a wide variety of standard sizes:
The Material Difference
The small crystal size and hard bonding matrix of CerCo's ultra-fine alumna ceramic creates a material that's almost as hard as diamond, and offers excellent chemical resistance. It out performs other construction materials most commonly used in material handling systems for dry substances, slurries and dust-laden gases, lasting from three to 15 times longer.
Alumina ceramic lasts substantially longer than stainless steel or Ni-hard casting, yet costs about half as much. While alumina ceramic's cost is higher than that of carbon steel, its documented service life is six to 10 times longer.
The graph illustrates alumina ceramic's superior wear resistance and hardness, with less than half the weight of Ni-hard, A.R., stainless or carbon steel.

Pre-Engineered Linings and Monolithic Shapes
CerCo will custom-engineer shapes and pre-engineer ceramic linings made to fit. In addition to reducing field installation time, pre-engineered linings minimize joints, ensure close fit and enhance lining performance to maximize equipment protection. Our state-of-the-art precision cutting and measuringequipment will provide engineered linings for any abrasives handling system.
Wear-Resistant ceramic linings increase productivity in a variety of industry applications:
