Ceramics can be classified as inorganic non-metallic solid made up of either metal or non-metal compounds that are shaped by subjecting them to heat at high temperatures. Advanced ceramic materials were used in day to day life example fridge magnets. They play a major role in modern medicine where they are used as dental implants and bone substitutes in orthopaedic operations. Ceramic artifacts plays an important role in archaeology for understanding technology, behaviour of the people and their culture in the past.
Ceramic materials are brittle, hard, and strong in compression, weak in shearing and tension. They withstand chemical erosion that occurs in other materials subjected to acidic or caustic environments.
