Dielectric Materials for Antennas

Advanced Materials

With over 50 years of advanced ceramic expertise, Trans-Tech leads the industry in technical ceramic materials through its advanced materials product line. Leveraging in-house manufacturing capabilities, we deliver materials ranging from custom particle size distributions for thermal barrier coatings and fuel cells to machined precision components. As an independent material supplier, we build more than trusted materials — we build lasting relationships.

Trans-Tech’s Thermal and Environmental Barrier Coatings (TBCs and EBCs) set the industry standard for EB-PVD. Thanks to the material purity and uniform density, a controlled melt pool can be achieved with minimal eruptions and spits. This ensures high-quality results and superior performance in various applications.


Our Capabilities

With unmatched capabilities, we’re able to work on a number of needs and scales.

  • In-house analysis
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy dispersive X-ray (EDAX) capability
  • X-ray diffraction (XRD)
  • X-ray fluorescence (XRF)
  • Particle size distribution using laser light scattering
  • Surface area analysis using BET method
  • High temperature electrical conductivity (up to 1000 °C)
  • Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
  • Dilatometer for thermal expansion coefficient determination
  • Optical microscopy



Our high-volume, solid state reaction manufacturing process allows us to provide low-cost materials and large homogeneous batch sizes. Typical powders range in particle sizes (D50) below two microns and have surface areas up to eight m2/g. Standard forming methods can also be used to produce a variety of custom component shapes.

  • Homogeneous lot sizes up to 3600 kgs
  • Production capacity in excess of 500,000 kgs per year
  • Urethane lined vibratory energy mills with ultra low wear media provide tight particle size distributions while minimizing media contamination
  • Batch AND continuous kilns up to 1700 °C in a variety of atmospheres
