Summary

This chapter describes a revolutionary material only recently introduced for designers. It solves the brittleness problem associated with normal ceramics resulting in a tough, very high temperature, wear and corrosion resistant material of construction. The author describes various initial applications and the material itself including chemical types, properties and suppliers.
