Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2015 -- Ceramic materials used for construction are inorganic, non metallic materials made from compounds of a metal or a non metal. Construction ceramics can be differentiated into 3 types namely high performance ceramics which include alumina, silicon carbide, silicon nitride; glass/glass ceramics which include soda glass, borosilicate glass and lithium aluminosilicate and the last is cementitious materials which include cement, concrete, high pressed cement, DSP cement, warm pressed cement and MDF cement. The most common material used for structural ceramic parts is alumina. Cementitious materials are being replaced by high performance silicate due to their improved durability, higher elastic stiffness, higher dimensional stability, and higher temperature resistance among other characteristics.

One of the major applications of ceramics is in the multibillion dollar construction industry. Concrete has been in use for the past few decades in this industry due to its low cow cost and easy availability. These materials properties such as compressive strength have gone up in certain high strength concrete over the past couple of years. However, the use of these concrete based materials are not trouble free, and improvements still have to be made. In contrast, high performance ceramics have several advantages over concrete but are still too expensive to be widely used. Ceramics are widely used in products like floors, walls, roofing tiles, cement, brick, gypsum, sewer pipes and glass which are all major products in the construction agency.

Cost performance comparison of ceramics and traditional construction materials throws light on the fact that while ceramics is known to be a more economical alternative in the future owing to their special applications such as strong structures and their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions, its initial cost is still too expensive to be widely used . with mass production of these ceramics and technological advancements and improvement of toughening techniques ceramics of further improved performance can be produced a lower cost which will help this market demand for the product grow in the future. Present construction problems include the widespread infrastructural decay in the industrial world, which has been attributed to the exhaustion of the material life for a large number of concrete structures. The tremendous cost in rehabilitation creates a large market for materials with much longer lifetime and minimal maintenance requirements.
