Index of Materials - Ceramic - Fibres

Ceramic

Ceramics are non-organic, non-metallic materials which show excellent resistance to high temperatures, abrasives and chemicals. They have comparatively low densities and are extremely hard. The nature of their structure means that some show poor shock resistance.

Fibre

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 grammes of a 1km length of material.
