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.

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.
