In everyday language, the term ceramic refers to an object made of earth and which has been fired at a higher or lower temperature. In thehistory of manthe art of working ceramics came before that of working glass or metalThe art of working with ceramics came before the art of working with glass or clay in the Neolithic period.
And it turns out that ceramics have different properties depending on the nature of their components and their firing temperature.
For example, we distinguish between pottery, porcelain, etc. earthenwareporcelain, etc.
A broader definition of ceramics specifies that they are non-metallic and non-organic materials obtained by the action of high temperatures.
It is these high temperatures that induce, in the heart of the first one, an irreversible material It is these high temperatures that induce, at the heart of the first, an irreversible transformation which confers to the produced ceramic, new properties: solidity and resistance resistance to wear and tear, resistance to heatinsulating properties.
