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.
A regular solid or hollow three-dimensional form in which every cross-section is a circle. Spheres are available with standard or precision tolerances, and can be supplied with different surface finishes depending on the material.
