Ceramic Materials: Thermal Conductivity & Insulation

Ceramic Materials: Thermal Conductivity & Insulation

When we think about ceramic materials and thermal conductivity, our first instinct might be to assume they're always excellent thermal insulators. However, the reality is that engineering ceramics come with a wide range of thermal conductivities, with the lowest and...

High Strength ‘Ceramic Steel’ Zirconia

High Strength ‘Ceramic Steel’ Zirconia

Unlike traditional ceramics that tend to be hard and brittle, Zirconia (ZrO2) has high strength, wear resistance and a flexibility far beyond those of most other technical ceramics. Zirconia (ZrO2) also has excellent corrosion and chemical resistance without the...

Macor Composition

Macor Composition

Macor machinable glass ceramic is a white, odourless, porcelain-like (in appearance) material composed of approximately 55% fluorophlogopite mica and 45% borosilicate glass. It has no known toxic effects; however, the dust created in machining can be an irritant. This...
