Our experts help you select the optimal process option for durable and reliable ceramic-to-ceramic and ceramic-to-metal joining.
Structural Bonding CoorsTek structural bonding provides custom design options not available with hard-facing or coatings, and is compatible with a large number of materials. By limiting the use of exotic materials to the important contact points, the cost and weight of your application is minimized.
CoorsTek uses numerous proprietary processes, with each step carefully monitored and tested. Often our bond strengths measure several times the strength advertised for a given epoxy.
Brazing Brazing involves bonding metal to ceramic for structural purposes, creating a thin, uniform joint. CoorsTek brazes components for numerous applications, including power generation and optics.
Epoxy CoorsTek offers B-stage epoxy sealing capability for lids, caps, covers, and frames. Epoxy seals combine high strength and moisture resistance, while frequently providing a more process-friendly, cost-effective option than brazing or soldering.
Advanced Assembly From basic component manufacturing to advanced joining and subassembly, CoorsTek provides just the right level of assembly service integration for your project.
