I would think that investment casting companies would be interested in these
materials for use as cores. Try . They have an investment
casting facility located in Miami, Florida they cast short run, precision
pieces in superalloy's. They might be able to help you answer some of these
questions. Will Ataluka, is a process engineer, he might be a good contact,
I would tell you his boss's name, but I can't remember it right now.

Dear RP’ers
                        I am currently investigating the feasibility of
setting up a business for the manufacture of ceramic prototypes and low
volume manufacture, in the following materials Alumina, silica, silicon
carbide & nitride as well as PZT. Does anybody know of companies that would
require such a service and who would be willing to answer a questionnaire in
order to help me assess the market size for this type of service? Many
thanks for your time and help.
Best regards
                        Chris Ainsley
