Our product StarCeram makes us a leading manufacturer of powders and components made of high-performance ceramics. We are based in Selb in Bavaria, right in the heart of Europe, where we have been producing ceramic products to meet the most exacting demands for more than 40 years.

We are one of the few vertically integrated manufacturers that covers the entire value chain – from powder production to the manufacture of complex large-scale components. We are constantly expanding our versatile range of ceramic solutions to produce the high-performance ceramics of the future.

The StarCeram family of materials includes both technical oxide ceramics and state-of-the-art non-oxide materials. With every product solution, our focus is on maximum homogeneity of the materials and the quality requirements that are critical to highly complex applications. We work in close collaboration with our clients to develop the best possible product from StarCeram – from development to prototype and finished component. Client-specific requirements and technical specifications form the point of departure for every client’s project. This has resulted in H.C. Starck Ceramics building up extensive expertise, technical competence and close client relationships over the past decades – and this is also the way forward for us.
