We meet these challenges with unsurpassed expertise in materials engineering, broad research & development capabilities, operational excellence, and a commitment to building reliable, collaborative relationships.
Since the early 1900s, CoorsTek has continually refined the processes and methods necessary for both the design and manufacturing of technical ceramics. As our company has grown and expanded to new locations around the world, so has our expertise. It’s in our DNA.
Using the right methods and processes for manufacturing high-quality technical ceramic components is as essential as choosing the correct ceramic material to meet the needs of the application. Advanced material processing through to forming, firing, and finishing requires a high-level of control and expertise that can only be provided by a manufacturer with deep knowledge and understanding of the entire production cycle.
Because these methods and processes are so critical to achieving the properties and tolerances required by a component design, CoorsTek considers and selects the ideal combinations for each project. Processes are selected because they are the best options for a given applicationÑnot because we are limited by capabilities.
