Silicates Overview

Family Overview

Silicate ceramics, the oldest family of ceramics, are multi-phase materials developed from natural silicate sources such as clay, kaolin, feldspar, and soapstone. Today’s silicates — including cordierite, forsterite, mullite, steatite, and technical porcelain — evolved from traditional ceramics and are useful for cost-effective technical applications such as electrical insulators and chemical labware.
