The Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials is a lasting and important part of the Polish research and development community that combines a high level of scientific research with an implementation of its achievements in the industrial practice.

The range of the Institute's research is wery wide and includes the total of technical sciences related to ceramics and glass. The global development of science and technology has influenced the scope of the Institute's activity, shaping the structure of its research facilities and the undertaken research projects. This has resulted, for example, in a dynamic development of studies in the area of bioceramics or nanoceramics.

Over years of co-operation, a strong bond has developed between the Polish industry of ceramics, glass products and building materials, and the scientific community of the Institute. Mutual trust and good results of co-operation make it possible to react promptly to the needs of industry with respect to the technology of material processing and manufacturing of modern products that satisfy market requirements. Tradition, modernity, scientific inquisitiveness and reliability in the execution of research and development projects underlie a good reputation and a recognizable trademark of the Institute and its staff.

Apart from the scientific and research work, the Institute undertakes industrial production of special, small-scale and unique products, filling recognized market niches. We find solutions to problems that are too difficult or unattractive for others.

Technology, Innovations
Application of roasted low-calorie coal-associated shales in building technology

Graf1The Glass and Building Materials Division of the Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials and the Department of Building Materials Technology of the Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics of the AGH University of Science and Technology, basing on their research and development works, have elaborated an innovative technology:  a method of roasting of low-calorie coal-associated shales or clays containing no combustible parts in an annular fluid layer, and a reactor with an annular fluid layer for their roasting.


National Leaders of Innovation and Development 2011

LogoThe Glass and Building Materials Division in Cracow was awarded the title of the Regional Leader of Innovation and Development in the 2011 Małopolskie Province Regional Edition of the competition for National Leaders of Innovation and Development  in the category of Innovative Products, for the mortar based on Roman cement, used  for conservation and restoration of architectural monuments.

sicRefractory Materials Division in Gliwice is only Polish producer of silicon carbide nitride bonded products. This product with high content SiC (80%) characterized by: high thermal conductivity and high resistance to thermal shock [PROPORTIES].

Mobile Laboratory

Mobilne laboratoriumThe Laboratory is a holder of   the Testing Laboratory Accreditation Certificate  No AB 799 granted by the Polish Centre for Accreditation in Warsaw which confirms compliance with the standard PN – EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005  and requirements of the document PKN-CEN/TS 15675:2009 „Emissions measurements from stationary sources. Application PN – EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for periodical measurements”

Aerated Concrete

ConcreteThe technology of producing  autoclaved aerated concrete stands for waste-free process, friendly to environment and allowing  to form vast range of assortments to be applied in different types of construction profiles (residential apartments, public utility, industry).

Leadless colours for glass and ceramic decoration

Farby bezołowioweThe 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

HIPTo 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.
