Ceramic

Ceramic is an inorganic solid material that is made through a process of heating either non-metal or metal materials to a very high temperature, shaping them, and then allowing them to harden. Ceramic is non-metallic by nature. While tending to be brittle to possible chips or cracks, ceramic is a very hard material. Additionally, ceramic is known for its resistance to corrosion over time, such as rusting that normally results from exposure to water or humidity.
