ceramic

 [sĕ-ram´ik]
an object or material that is hard, brittle, and resistant to corrosion and heat, made by subjecting clay or a combination of minerals to high temperatures.
glass ceramic any of a number of forms of crystallized glass having a variety of properties and uses, including the manufacture of dental restorations; formed by heating to the point of crystallization an amorphous glass matrix to which impurities have been added to provide nuclei for crystal formation.

Randomized Intravascular Ultrasound Comparison Between EndopRostheses with and without AMorphous SIlicon-Carbide for the Prevention of Coronary Restenosis. A trial assessing the ability of amorphous silicon-carbide coating to decrease in-stent volume of intimal hyperplasia after elective coronary stenting
Primary endpoints Post-stenting in-stent volume of intimal hyperplasia, assessed by intravascular ultrasonography; major acute coronary events (MACE), and target lesion revascularisation
Conclusion It is not effective
