The ceramic components and hermetic assemblies of Solcera meet the very demanding needs of military equipment under operational conditions.

Solcera CERA4RESIST® ceramics combine extreme hardness, high mechanical strength and low material density for high performance armor solutions. The CERA4RESIST® is available in two grades: black & white.

Cera4resist black
Cera4resist White

Our advanced carbide or alumina ceramic materials meet specific needs in the areas of defense, security and personal protection.

Solcera has also recently launched the new CERA4PROTECT® transparent ceramics range which opens up new perspectives for ballistic protection of aircrafts and ground vehicles.

CERA4VIEW® our optical ceramic guarantees high transmission in the ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared (IR) portions of the spectrum (300nm to 5μm).
Solcera also offers a wide range of ceramics for seekers with infrared and electromagnetic guidance. These materials combine transparency with thermomechanical resistance.
