FEREM Ultra 55 plus

This work group has a variety of characterization methods for ceramic raw materials, intermediates and final products such as particle sizes, surfaces, density, and porosity definition processes, depictive and thermoanalytic processes, radiograph phase analysis as well as suspension characterization. Many years of experience with ceramographic structure preparation as a requirement for quantitative phase- and structure analysis of oxide ceramics is our strength.
