Crazing refers to a covering of fine or minute cracks on the surface of a material, usually a glazed ceramic.

Crazing is different from cracking in that crazes cannot be felt on the surface, which can continue to support loads. Crazing may also appear on thermoplastics such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, on single-ply roofing membranes and even concrete. The term is also used in odontology to describe fine cracks in the enamel of teeth.
