Wear Components & Tiles

Ceramic Wear Components and Tiles for Extreme Durability and Corrosion Resistance

Group of various technical ceramic wear-resistant components.


CoorsTek technical ceramics exhibit long-lasting wear in the most abrasive environments. Our advanced technical ceramics offer higher strength and corrosion resistance than traditional wear materials. Let our wear design experts help you choose the best material and configuration, carefully considering your particular wear conditions and budget. We offer a broad range of aluminas and silicon carbides to ensure an ideal fit, form, and function. 

Advanced ceramic wear components for a variety of applications:

Processing equipment:

  • Pharmaceutical clean rooms
  • Food processing plants
  • Grain handling
  • Mineral processing
  • Cement manufacturing
  • Chemical processing
  • Large Cyclones:
    • Coal-fired power plants
    • Steel Mills
    • Asphalt Plants
    • Petrochemical plants
  • Pulp and paper mills



Used in heavy industry for years as a cost-effective, wear-resistant solution, these lightweight materials offer high durability, strength, and excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance. Alumina wear resistant compositions include:

  • Alumina 90: most common wear product with great wear resistance
  • Alumina 92: increased wear performance
  • Alumina 96: premium alumina for best wear resistance
  • Zirconia toughened alumina:  increased strength and impact resistance
