Lucideon has over a hundred years of experience in supporting traditional ceramics. From our origin as the British Ceramic Research Association, the heritage is in our DNA. We carry out performance testing and failure analysis on a vast range of products, from tableware, whiteware, sanitaryware, tiles, and refractory materials, and our world-class team of ceramics experts offers innovative process solutions to design and production challenges to ensure that our clients are best equipped to stand out against competitors.
With years of experience in ceramics production, our consultants work with you to improve efficiencies and yield, and reduce waste and costs. Whether you want to improve your existing product line or to integrate new and efficient processes, we can help.
Raw materials selection
To make a quality, durable, and long-lasting product, while keeping costs to a minimum, you must select the appropriate raw materials. At Lucideon we can analyse your raw materials to make sure that they are correct for your needs.
Tableware and tiles - failure analysis
We perform both extensive testing to predict and reduce failure risks in application, and root cause identification analysis of failures if they occur in use. Our expert team can analyse a client's production line, identify root causes, and suggest remedial actions.
Lucideon's full testing suite is at your disposal. We regularly test sanitaryware and tableware for manufacturers, imports, and retailers. We provide a comprehensive refractory testing service, and we test materials and products for the ceramic tile industry.
We deliver training courses to companies worldwide.
As an internationally recognised expert in ceramics, our whitewares courses are aimed at tableware, tile, and sanitaryware manufacturers, as well as retailers and suppliers.
Our training modules are available to be delivered either at our North Staffordshire headquarters, or online via webinar.
Drying is an important process in almost all industry sectors, including ceramics, pharmaceutical, food, chemical, construction and semiconductors
