Alumino Silicates

Alumino silicate produced under the trade name of Cerasil™ 224U ceramic has similar properties to steatite although has enhanced thermal shock resistance.

This material is often used for products within the electronics industry for applications such as:

  • Bushings
  • Resistors
  • Spacers
  • Coil forms
  • General electronics

Cerasil™ 224U has some distinct advantages over steatite such as lower C.O.T.E. resulting in excellent thermal shock resistance. Other features and benefits of this material include:

  • Excellent thermal shock resistance
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Low expansion
  • Dense, non-porous and vacuum tight

In addition, Cerasil™ also has a lower firing temperature, lower shrinkage and lower tool wear, all of which lower processing costs and offer cost effective solutions to our customers.

We work closely with our customers to ensure the right materials are selected to ensure a fully optimised product from design through to end production. To find out how we can work with you on your project, contact us today.
