USACA is the premier association that champions the common business interests of the advanced ceramic producer and end-user industries.
USACA was formed in 1985 to facilitate the commercialization of the United States’ advanced ceramics industry and quickly became the leading voice of the advanced ceramics industry before the U.S. Congress and federal agencies.
USACA recognizes that the key to the industry’s survival is the identification of new commercial market opportunities for advanced ceramics.
USACA has a long-standing commitment to promoting the use of advanced ceramics as the foundation for a new generation of high-efficiency and high-performance products for surface transportation, aerospace, defense, energy, and industrial applications.
