Most competing piezoelectric ceramics (PZT) are limited to 100-125˚C. However, QorTek high temperature piezoelectric ceramics expand this limit to 300-350˚C and can provide solutions to actuation and sensing/harvesting clients with high-temperature requirements in a small form factor that enables new design space in actuator and sensing/harvesting applications.
