Titania-Based Ceramic (IEC 60672 Type C-310)

C-310 titania-based ceramic is an oxide-based engineering ceramic. It has a moderately low heat capacity and a moderately high density among oxide-based engineering ceramics. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare C-310 titania-based ceramic to other oxide-based engineering ceramics (top) and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
