Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Material Supply

Some of our customers prefer to have raw material in their stock so that they can make components themselves, either for prototyping or for their production requirements.

We carry large stocks of rod, bar and plate. We also supply blanks to our customers' specific sizes.

Examples include:

MACOR®

This machinable glass ceramic has the properties of a ceramic yet it can be machined with standard metalworking tools. It has excellent electrical properties and can be machined to high tolerance.

  • Machinable to high tolerance
  • Excellent electrical insulator
  • Operates up to 1000°C, good thermal insulator
  • Strong and rigid, does not creep

Duratec 750®

This is an engineering grade, high-temperature insulation material that can be machined and offers good thermal shock resistance.

  • Easily machinable
  • High-temperature performance
  • Thermally insulating
  • Good electrical properties

Other materials, including sheet insulation materials, are available.
