Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Glazed Ceramics

Glazing of ceramics is often used when it is necessary to be able to remove unwanted residue from the surface of the material quickly and easily. Spark plugs are a typical example of where glazing is used to reduce the possibility of potential arcing where high voltages are involved.

A glazed finish also provides a more aesthetically pleasing look to components, which may be desirable for components which will be highly visible during use.

Characteristics of glazed ceramics include:

  • Provides a smooth, visually attractive surface
  • Allows easy cleaning of component surface
  • Reduces possibility of electrical arcing
  • Can improve chemical resistance
