About Us

TytułDevelopment and research activity includes research and implementations in the area of ceramics: testing of biomaterials, in this in particular glass-ionomer cements for dentistry and otosurgery, bioglasses, implants and ceramic cements for bone surgery, process improvement to obtain monolithic and porous constructions, in this nanostructural and gradient materials of high mechanical resistance (eg. ballistic ceramics) which are thermal stress proof in high temperatures, forming ceramic, metallic and semiconductor nanopowders as well as new technologies to receive decoration agents like pigments, enamels and paints to decorate articles made of glass, ceramic and metals.

For many years the Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials has been preoccupied with developing decorative technologies for use in the ceramics, glass and enamelling industries by implementing research and development as well as target projects.



Composites, Si3N4-MoSi2, as the material for heating elements of new generation.

Currently, the ceramic heating elements ( SiC, Si3N4, MoSi2) again and again are superseding the traditional heating elements based on metals. The unquestionable advantage of ceramic heating elements is their considerably longer service life as well as the resistance to oxidation and aggressive environment.



Development of production technology for high-temperature ceramic material, resistant to thermal shocks up to the temperature of 1000oC


There is considerable demand for technical ceramic products with increased mechanical strength at high temperatures in particular.




Leadless colours for glass and ceramic decoration


The harmful activity of lead compounds present in ceramic colours forces to seek solutions eliminating harmful agents both during the colours production stage as well as during their application.



HIP – Hot Isostatic Press


To meet the demands of Polish scientists engaged in research in areas such as materials engineering,  solid-state physics, Earth science, defence sciences etc., the first hot isostatic press (HIP) in Poland was set working at the Department of Nanotechnology.
