Fire Ceramic Extrusions
Extruding ceramic has a multitude of processes and applications. Industrial extrusions are common to create honeycomb for the diesel particulate filter industry, clay pipes and bricks as well as fine parts for motors and insulators. Typically an extrusion is contains a ceramic forming component made plastic by a liquid vehicle and stabilized by a cellulose binder. Less complex applications will use a simple clay body. The material is then machine driven through a die that gives it its desired shape.
