SUNROCK CERAMICS PROCESS

We start with high purity raw materials that are pressed with a hydraulic / friction press to a desired density. In the press, the material is first de-aired then compacted to a specified density and thickness. Our equipment is ideal for consistently achieving target density and for pressing complicated shapes.

After the parts are pressed and dried they are then fired for an extended soak at 1650°C (3000°F), which provides strong ceramic bonding and full creation of a mullite ceramic matrix, thereby minimizing the inclusion of free silica.  Sunrock’s products are therefore very chemically clean and inert.
