Ceramic in the process of “Stud Welding” is called “Ceramic Arc Shields”. In fact it is a kind of refractory which main ingredients is composed of minerals compounds.
Material used in industrial ceramics depends on the consumption type can be different:
including alumina, staeini, persolini, zirconia and cordierite. Each one has its own application in the industry.
Ceramic that is selected in stud welding process must resist against thermal shock and having thermal-electrical insulation feature since stud welding process is accomppanied by a very high temperature and nevertheless ceramics with Cordierite body will be the best choice.
