The term ceramics is used to describe inorganic, non-metallic solid materials of a polycrystalline or at least partly polycrystalline structure which are formed by a firing process (sintering). First of all, a ceramic mass is prepared from powders and optimised for a variety of shaping processes. These shaping processes give the components their geometry. Unsintered ceramic bodies are known as green bodies. The subsequent sintering process causes the ceramic body to become compacted and take on its finished form, which may then require further machining.
