Ceramics cannot be strengthened the same way as metals...

    Can someone please confirm, that there is no such thing as solution hardening or particulate hardening in ceramics?

    I believe you cannot do the processes mentioned. I'm not entirely sure why though. I just say because the ceramic will fracture.
