The Future of Macor in Printed Circuit Boards

The structural foundations of the printed circuit board market are laminates made of glass fibre and epoxy. These are thin and usually green cards that support all of the circuit components such as resistors, transistors and capacitors within an integrated circuit. They connect together through conducting paths that are etched on the card’s surface. But…

Technical Ceramics Magnesia Stabilised Zirconia Improves

One of the most common technical ceramics that could be compared in strength with steel has been tetragonal zirconia, also called YTZP or yttria partially stabilised zirconia, which has been doped with yttrium trioxide, also called yttria. YTZP has outstanding properties at normal temperatures. It has a structure that is predominantly tetragonal and a very…
