Magnetic Properties of Ceramic Minerals – Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd

Magnetic minerals and fine iron have plagued ceramic producers since the first glazed pot was produced many thousands of years ago. Early ceramicists adopted elaborate and colourful patterns to cover any imperfections caused by such contamination. Over time, the demand for white or single coloured ceramic products increased, making disguising any imperfection increasingly difficult. Ceramic producers turned … Continued

Nano-additives For Electrically Conductive Polymers: Explained By Radical Materials

A brief introduction into the application of nano-additives within electrically conductive polymers. For certain applications, it is often desirable to combine the traditional advantages of polymers with electrical conductivity ranging from static dissipation through to conduction and EMI/RFI shielding. Applications for such polymers are evident in industries such as automotive, aerospace, defence, electronics and battery … Continued

Electromagnetic Filters for Ceramics

Since the first ceramics were produced, iron and iron-bearing minerals have caused defects. The problematic minerals occur naturally in the raw materials, with additional fine iron accidentally introduced during transportation, storage or processing. Effective removal often involves several stages of magnetic separation. However, the introduction of High-Intensity Electromagnetic Filters proved ground-breaking in terms of removing … Continued
