Modern technological advancements have produced new generations of miniaturized, active implantable medical devices (AIMDs). These innovative devices have profound impacts on patient quality of life. SCT Ceramics’ custom, ceramic-to-metal feedthroughs are designed and engineered to meet the unique forms and demanding technical specifications of our clients. With over 50 years in brazing ceramic to metal, we bring expertise and vision to take on some of the most challenging projects in the industry.

We propose the following material options:


  • Aluminum Oxide: We use a high-purity, biocompatible proprietary formula under our brand ALUCER®
  • Zirconia: An ideal option for applications requiring super-miniaturized devices or high degrees of impact resistance
  • Ruby: Used as a ceramic alternative for highly miniaturized feedthroughs
  • Synthetic Sapphire: Used in applications requiring optically transparent materials
  • CUSTOM: Custom materials can be developed to meet specific requirements


  • Palladium, platinum-iridium and niobium are the primary and ideal choices for pins in ceramic-to-metal feedthrough designs


  • We offer Grade 2 Titanium or Platinum solutions
