    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
