Ceramic Properties - Mullite
Mullite is an excellent structural ceramic parts material due to its high temperature stability, strength and creep resistance. It has a low dielectric constant and high electrical insulation capabilities.
Typical applications include Kiln Furniture, furnace center tube, heat exchange parts, heat insulation parts, and rollers.
