Thermal Shock Resistant

What does thermal shock resistant mean?

A material that is thermal shock resistant can resist rapid and sudden changes in temperature.

For instance, a common occurrence that produces a thermal shock in a material is a temperature or thermal gradient.  A thermal gradient causes random expansions at various points within the material.  This phenomenon creates areas of stress and strain on the material at multiple points during the operation thus rendering it susceptible to fracturing and becoming potential unsafe.

Thermal shock resistance is the property of a material that makes it resistant to sudden and rapid temperature changes.  Materials that have high thermal shock resistant properties can withstand large temperature variations.

Thermal shocks are generated when materials are operated inefficiently or posses certain defects.  These particular issues cause stress and strain causing the temperature at these junctions to drastically increase.  This temperature increase can render the material subject to failure at any point in time.
