Abstract

The types of metals and ceramics to be joined, their application, features and characteristics are preliminarily summarized. The main challenges are pointed out and discussed, possible solutions envisaged. As a consequence, general methods for joining metals to ceramics are presented. Their strong and weak points and possible outcomes are presented. The so-called direct bonding methods are discussed, in particular solid-phase, non-fusion welding. Strengths and weaknesses of techniques and materials are considered, as well as further concerns such as biocompatibility, thermal/chemical performances and long-term degradation. Indirect bonding methods are described, such as liquid-phase and solid-phase bonding, as well as active brazing techniques. Joining procedures, brazing agents, possible features and drawbacks, experimental testing issues and feasible applications are considered. Finally, expected future developments and their likely applications are presented together with sources of further information.
