Firing: A higher temperature process to form strong ceramic bonds which are critical to the strength and performance of technical ceramics. Uniform firing leads to more consistent fired products. Volatiles are sometimes given off and these need to be treated with thermal oxidizers.
Sintering: This is similar to firing (as above) but the term is used more specifically with some processes and products.
Debinding or Burnout: A low temperature process for slowly removing binders and additives without altering the shape or characteristics of a product. Volatiles are sometimes given off and these need to be treated with thermal oxidizers.
