Ceramic

Burnt clayware, consisting of a mixture of sand and clay, shaped, dried and finally fired in a kiln. Main types include terra-cotta, used mainly for unglazed air bricks, chimney pots and floor tiles; fire clay, used for flue linings since it has a fire resistance; vitreous china, used for plumbing fixtures and sanitary appliances.

ceramic

(materials)
Inorganic, nonmetallic materials processed or used at high temperature, generally including oxides, nitrides, borides, carbides, silicides, and sulfides. Intermetallic compounds such as aluminides and beryllides are also considered ceramics, as are phosphides, antimonides, and arsenides.
Consisting of such a product.

ceramic

Any of a class of products, made of clay or a similar material, which are subjected to a high temperature during manufacture or use, as porcelain, stoneware, or terra-cotta; typically a ceramic is a metallic oxide, boride, carbide, or nitride, or a mixture or compound of such materials; hard, brittle, and an electrical insulator.

Alumina is the main structure-forming component which imparts high chemical and thermal resistances of the ceramic materials. Due to the spherulitic porous structure of the alumina, its particles have a high surface energy and a contact area between the grains, which creates favorable conditions for sintering.
