Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Mullite

Mullite is an alumino silicate ceramic with good high-temperature stability. The material is used extensively in the steel and glass industries in the form of refractory bricks and shapes. It is also used as a lower cost alternative to alumina, with slightly better thermal shock properties.

In addition to finding application as kiln furniture, the material can be extruded as tubes and pressed to form technical components.

Characteristics of mullite include:

  • Good thermal shock properties
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Good wear resistance and resistance to creep
  • Can be used up to approximately 1400°C

Goodfellow Ceramic and Glass Division is able to supply a wide range of ceramic and glass materials as finished components. Our capabilities range from custom-made precision microcomponents with very high tolerance features to large heavy-duty components used in industrial applications. Additionally, standard semi-finished forms such as tubes, rods, bars, plates, crucibles and spheres are often available from our wide inventory. Please contact us with full details of your requirements, including drawings where available, and we will review and respond with a quotation as soon as possible.
