What are Advanced Ceramics

Advanced ceramics are a key enabling technology for many applications in the aerospace, defense, power generation, and industrial processing industries that have a significant national impact with economic and environmental contributions. Advanced ceramics expand on the unique thermal, wear, and corrosion resistant capabilities of traditional ceramics by increasing toughness.

Who We Are & What We Do

The U.S. Advanced Ceramics Association (USACA) is a 501(c)(6) business league that champions the business interests of the advanced ceramic producers and end-users.  The Association was formed in 1985 and members range from the largest U.S. industrial companies to smaller corporations dedicated to the manufacture of advanced ceramic products including ceramic matrix composites, coatings, and monolithic structures.  USACA is the leading voice of the advanced ceramics industry before the U.S. Congress, federal agencies and industrial users.

Lancer Systems

Lancer engineers are experts in lightweight composite material design and application. The realm of composites, which includes thermoplastics, thermosets, and ceramic-matrix materials, sometimes offers intrinsic material properties superior to metal.  Areas of potential advantage include weight, stiffness-to-weight ratio, self-lubricity, thermal and/or electrical insulation, performance at extreme temperatures (both cryogenic and > 2500°F) and manufacturing cost.  Lancer’s breadth of composites materials and processes experience gives us the ability to identify opportunities for which composites offer advantages to metal, and to design and select appropriate solutions for these applications.

Lancer’s market focus is application engineering, rapid prototyping and production volumes typical of Defense applications.
