Ceramic Substrates HONEYCERAM®

In the early 1970s a new type of catalyst support, the ceramic substrate HONEYCERAM, was developed for the catalytic converter. The HONEYCERAM gets its name from the array of parallel channels or cells that create the look of a honeycomb.

This new design possessed compatibility with:

  • catalysts and coatings,
  • flexibility of shape and size,
  • high geometric surface area,
  • durability, low pressure drop,
  • space efficiency,
  • fast warm-up.
