A ceramic is an inorganic, nonmetallic solid prepared by the action of heat and subsequent cooling. Ceramic materials may have a crystalline or partly crystalline structure, or may be amorphous producing a white, odorless, porcelain-like (in appearance) material. Because most common ceramics are crystalline, the definition of ceramic is often restricted to inorganic crystalline materials, as opposed to the non-crystalline glasses. Types of technical ceramics Can also be classified into three distinct material categories:  Oxides: alumina, beryllia, ceria, zirconia  Nonoxides: carbide, boride, nitride, silicide  Composite materials: particulate reinforced, fiber reinforced, combinations of oxides and nonoxides.
