Ceramic car parts. Car parts made from an advanced technical ceramic material. Ceramics are non- metallic materials which have been made rigid by being heated to a high temperature. Technical ceramics can provide a car with higher fuel efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions. This is because these ceramics have a very high thermal stability. Consequently fuel can be burnt at a higher temperature, causing fuel to combust more completely, and at higher efficiency. Ceramic car parts also have the advantages of being lightweight and having good mechanical strength. Photographed in Germany.
