To form a ceramic piece, a few processes can be used to set the ceramics desired shape. Slip casting requires a liquid mixture to then use the injection molding process. Another option is to use isostatic pressing which is used to form a dry powder.

To create a durable and usable component, the firing process is then administered. This can be performed before or after the finishing process, depending on the product’s intended use. It is important to keep in mind that shrinking will happen during the firing process. The typical machining processes are then conducted such as cutting, grinding, and etching.

The ceramic industry has become increasingly popular, producing rods, tubes, tank armor, and much more. These ceramic products are used in a broad range of applications and industries due to their insulation properties and high resistance to extreme temperatures, chemicals and high levels of electricity. Its resilience can eliminate issues such as expansion seen with metal in high temperature situations. Other properties found in ceramics include resistance to corrosion and minimal harmful side effects. Products made out of ceramics can be found in a variety of places—from dishes, to pottery, to even industrial grade equipment.
