Ceramic Properties - Macor
Macor is a machinable glass ceramic parts material offering many advantageous properties, including high use temperature, excellent insulating properties (electrical and thermal), and dimensional stability. It can be polished, machined to tight tolerances, tapped, sealed, and metallized.
It can be used in many of the same applications where alumina is used and the extreme high temperature and wear characteristics of alumina are not necessary.
