What are Fine Ceramics? The unsung hero of the modern digital economy explained!

Ever since its founding in 1959, Kyocera has been a pioneer in developing fine ceramics (also known as advanced ceramics) which have become an indispensable part of the modern digital economy. While people often appreciate fine ceramic knives and kitchen tools, many do not know that without fine ceramic technology we would not have cell phones, computers, or any of the modern devices essential to our daily lives!

The reasons for the importance of fine ceramics lies in their unique physical properties compared to other materials, such as aluminum or copper. Fine ceramics are incredibly heat resistant as well as electrical insulators, as such ceramic components bear much of the burden in semiconductors and smartphones, for example, to prevent them from overheating during use. This also helps push innovation in AI and IoT where new high powered processors require base components of equally high quality.

Don't take for granted any longer the importance that fine ceramics play in the modern digital economy! Follow us on linkedin to learn more about the unique applications that Kyocera has for fine ceramics!
