The good properties exhibited by ceramic materials, such as corrosion resistance, resistance to oxidation at high temperatures, resistance to wear, and low relative density have made them an especially attractive material for insulation of the combustion chamber of an automotive engine block. The limitations of ceramic materials in the area of low fracture toughness can be assuaged by using various methods of grain and boundary size strengthening. This paper presents a critical survey of some of the existing materials used for insulation of the combustion chamber of an automotive engine block, some existing ceramic coating techniques, and some existing strengthening mechanisms of ceramic materials used for insulation of automotive engine blocks with emphasis on methodologies, strengths, and weaknesses.
