Ceramic foams are a cellular structure containing a large volume fraction of gas-filled pores, the pores can be open-cell or closed-cell.

Ceramic foams have an interesting combination of properties, such as low weight, high mechanical strength, high chemical resistance, low thermal conductivity and low heat capacity.  These properties have lead to a diverse field of applications as below:


  • Metal melt filtration
  • Catalyst carriers
  • Thermal insulation
  • Ion-exchange filtration
  • Heat sinks and heat exchangers
  • Noise reduction
  • Medical technology


Fineway Ceramic foams are available in numerous pore sizes and are used in ceramic filters for all common metals, such as iron, stainless steel and aluminum. For meeting the highest standards and providing superior properties, Fineway Ceramic foam filters are also an ideal solution to be used in air and water treatment applications.
