Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ ceramic lining solutions can significantly reduce the need for maintenance, hole or leak repairs on piping systems; whether these are hydraulic, pneumatic, vacuum or gravity based.
Lining systems are available to address wear and corrosion issues affecting plant reliability and safety in a range of systems, including:
- Complex elbow
- Carbon steel tee or reducer
- Hardened pipe
- Nickel alloys
Materials such as Cryston®, Durafrax®, Norfrax® and Hexoloy® are ideal for use in demanding piping applications, particularly those requiring constant patching of elbows and leaks, which can lead to safety concerns, downtime and cost implications.

How difficult is it to adapt a ceramic lining to a particular system?
Ceramics can be easily adapted to work with almost all pipes and fittings while meeting any required pipe standards.
Is there a risk of incompatible lining thickness and mismatched inner diameters?
This is a common issue but not a cause for concern. Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories’ team of experienced engineers will carefully match the inner diameter of the system or unlined components being connected or designing for, adapting these to accommodate any pipe connections currently in use.
