Ceramdisc® and triduon® for manufacturing sanitary fittings

Technical Ceramics in Sanitary Fittings

Water is valuable. Today drinking water is a more valuable resource than ever and must be conserved and used responsibly. Technical ceramics can be used in sanitary fittings to avoid unnecessary waste.


Untight, leaky, imprecise and difficult to use mixing units are not only a source of frustration for users – they also waste valuable water unnecessarily. The use of Ceramdisc® ceramic seal and regulator discs in a single handle mixer and mixing unit cartridges or the installation of CeramTec’s own triduon® cartridges saves water – long lasting and with high comfort and high safety for the user.

Seal and Regulator Discs made from Advanced Ceramics

“Ceramdisc® ceramic discs stand for high hardness, the perfect seal and leak tightness in fittings, superior comfort and an extraordinarily long life.”

Annually, more than 50 million Ceramdisc® ceramic seal and regulator discs are installed in single-handle mixers, mixing units and faucets in the sanitary fittings industry. CeramTec has manufactured these ceramic seal discs ever since ceramic materials won out over conventional materials thanks to their long life.

Millions of Ceramdisc® ceramic seal discs have worked for decades in nearly every country around the world: They control and regulate the amount and temperature of water in mixing units and single-handle mixers and two-handle faucets reliably, precisely, comfortably and conveniently. Ceramdisc® ceramic discs made from wear-resistant advanced ceramics provide the perfect seal and their sliding properties ensure maximum functionality, dependability and operating comfort.

In addition to Ceramdisc® ceramic discs, CeramTec also produces a comprehensive portfolio of cartridges for single-handle mixers, mixing units and water faucets – both for OEM cartridges for OEM sanitary fitting manufacturers and the open market. All CeramTec cartridges have one thing in common: They are made in Germany exclusively from high-grade materials; sanitary fitting cartridges are produced at CeramTec’s Lauf and Wittlich sites.

One of CeramTec’s very own developments is the triduon® family of cartridges, which are currently available as triduon® performance in standard versions with 25 mm, 35 mm or 40 mm diameters and as triduon® thermo models in a thermostat version. The triduon® thermo cartridge is a cartridge with active scalding protection for single-handle faucets and helps prevent scalding by limiting the maximum supply water temperature in faucets and mixing units, e.g. in sinks, showers or bidets.
