The backstory


The American Ceramic Society published its first issue of “Phase Diagrams for Ceramacists” in the October 1933 issue of the Journal of The American Ceramic Society. It featured 178 diagrams with supporting explanatory material. Ceramic researchers then recognized the diagrams’ great value in saving time and money in research. Fast forward 85 years and researchers still count on ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams to provide the most trusted, comprehensive collection of critically evaluated phase diagrams for ceramic and inorganic systems for understanding temperature-dependent materials interactions.
