Ceramic

Ceramics are non-metallic, non-organic materials.

They exhibit excellent resistance to high temperatures. Although they have comparatively low densities, they are extremely hard but tend to be brittle. They show good resistance to both abrasives and chemicals.

Fiber

Yarns or tows consisting of several approximately parallel individual filaments, each filament usually being smaller in diameter than a monofilament.

Yarns contain a defined number of filaments, typically three to several hundred; tows contain thousands of filaments whose number is only defined approximately. Both are primarily specified by their linear density measured in "tex", the weight in grams of a 1km length of material.

Tolerances
Fiber diameter:   ±25%  
Number of strands:   ±10%  
Tex number:   ±10%  
Length:   +5% / -1%
