|Resistivity against||Corrosion and abrasion|
Like plastics and other non-metals, ceramic balls are available in a host of compositions and formulations. This data sheet covers many of the general properties shared by ceramic balls, and lists specific characteristics of different materials.
General Characteristics : As a rule, ceramic balls resist corrosion and abrasion extremely well. They also have low thermal conductivity, and a high resistance to heat. Ruby sapphire material can withstand extended exposure to temperatures in excess of 3250°F. These qualities make ceramic balls useful for flow control, metering, and bearing applications.
