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.

cer·a·mic

(sĕr-am'ik),
A product made primarily from nonmetallic mineral(s) by firing at a high temperature.
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
