Market Definition: Global Ceramic Balls Market
Ceramic balls are produced by pressing a ceramic powder binder mixture. The part lines are removed by finish-grinding after the ball is sintered. Designing of the ceramic balls is done by lapping and precision finishing. This process modifies the diameter, sphericity and surface finishing of the product. Applications that need specific material properties use hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technique after sintering is done. Pore-free microstructure and micron-sized grains of ceramic balls are produced by HIP process. They are made by variety of ceramic materials. Choices include alumina, cordierite and forsterite, metal boride, aluminium nitride, and aluminium silicate. Ceramic balls are mainly used for ceramic aerospace bearings, ceramic automotive bearings and conveyors balls. The performance of ceramic ball valve is better than that of metal ball valve. They are designed to offer long life and resistance against corrosion. For instance, In 2016, according to ceramtec company, total of 4.99 million ceramic head balls were sold that were used for different products by end use industries.
