Advanced ceramic systems and components for demanding industrial applications.
For over 50 years, Ceradyne has been a trusted name in nuclear power, oil and gas, solar energy, automotive, defense and other highly technical industries. A wholly owned subsidiary of 3M since 2012, Ceradyne continues to lead the industry in the development and production of advanced ceramic systems and components.
Get an inside look at how 3M and Ceradyne technologies combine to drive innovation and deliver new technologies to customers around the world:
Ceradyne boasts a broad portfolio of advanced ceramic materials and components designed to operate in harsh environments, help meet increasing regulatory requirements and perform in demanding applications.
Made of electrically conductive advanced ceramic composites and available with cavities or with a laser-treated surface, 3M™ Evaporation Boats are engineered for long life, high efficiency and performance in metallizing applications.
Embedded diamonds enhance friction to transmit higher loads while enabling more compact automotive engines, wind turbines and more. They reliably transmit up to 4x higher torques than conventional systems, so you can downsize without downgrading performance.
Ceradyne's high-purity fused silica flours, grains and shell systems help investment casting foundries produce highly accurate molds more quickly. Ceradyne also offers fused silica shapes for demanding glass melting and metalforming operations.
Ceradyne offers a wide range of specialty glass formulations optimized for a variety of electrical and sealing properties. 3M™ Specialty Glasses offer high performance for electronics manufacturing, the power industry and more.
3M™ Stable Isotopes are optimized materials for critical applications in the nuclear and semiconductor industries. With enrichment to levels exceeding 99% isotopic purity and the ability to custom-engineer products, we can help you push the boundaries of performance, purity and consistency.
Engineered for outstanding shock absorption and high load capacity, 3M™ Thrust Bearings help improve the reliability of drilling motors and electric submersible pumps in the challenging environments of oil and gas production.
