Product Summary of MACOR® machineable glass ceramic
Traditional ceramic materials can normally only be machined by diamond grinding once they have been fired, which can be costly. MACOR® machineable glass ceramic offers a potentially lower cost solution to this problem.
MACOR® can be quickly, accurately and economically machined into high-precision components using ordinary metalworking tools, and does not require any post-firing after machining has been completed, removing a production process, reducing manufacturing time and potentially reducing costs.
Characteristics of MACOR® machineable glass ceramic include:
- Maximum use temperature of 1000°C
- Strong and rigid
- Good electrical and thermal insulation
- Zero porosity
- Radiation resistant
- Low thermal conductivity
- Can be highly polished
