• Welcome to the COROLYMPICS! We tested four different materials - iron, plastic, wood, and fine ceramics - to find out which could survive three grueling challenges and earn the title of "The Most Wear-Resistant Material." Watch and see which material emerges victorious!

Property Comparison

  • Hardness

  • Rigidity

  • Thermal Shock Resistance

  • Heat Resistance

Kyocera’s Fine Ceramics (Infographic video)

  • What are Fine Ceramics? Learn about why these materials are used on land, in deep sea, and in space!

Fine Ceramics Supporting Space Observation
13 Billion Light-Years Away

  • This video introduces Kyocera’s fine ceramic technology used in the Subaru Telescope’s high resolution camera (HSC) lens. This innovative ceramic technology provides the lens barrel with extremely low thermal expansion and high structural rigidity, allowing scientists to observe the mysteries of the universe billions of light years away.
