Answering this question will give you most of the information about your design needs.

What is the working environment?

  • Dielectric strength
  • Electrical isolation
  • High temperatures
  • Corrosive chemicals and gases
  • Thermal shock
  • High wear and abrasion
  • Liquid & gas impermeable (vacuum)
  • Matching thermal expansion rates


Ceramics are recommended for all of these environments.
