Metallographic Preparation of Ceramic and Cermet Materials

Ceramic materials are compounds of metallic or nonmetallic elements. There are many ceramics because there are many combinations of metallic and nonmetallic atoms. In general, ceramics are oxidebased materials, although the word “ceramic” has been expanded to include metal carbides and metal borides, as well as metalloids. The ceramic material can be a cladding on the surface of a metal or dispersed in a metal matrix.
