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 hollow length of material normally circular in section. Most tubes are straight except those made of flexible polymer.
