MACOR® Benefits

MACOR® machinable glass ceramic provides numerous benefits across a range of different industries and markets.

Advantages of MACOR®

  • MACOR® can be machined with ordinary metal working tools
  • No need for post firing – meaning fast turnaround
  • Tight tolerances – up to .0005”
  • Continued use at 800°C and a peak temperature of 1000°C
  • No outgasing and zero porosity makes MACOR® clean
  • Reduced time between design and eventual use reduces costs

MACOR® machinable glass ceramic offers a cost effective ceramic solution for myriad applications. If you require a high performance technical ceramic that is capable in high temperatures, features electrical resistivity and zero porosity, MACOR® is an appropriate solution.

The easy working of MACOR® machinable glass ceramic into complicated shapes with extremely tight tolerances means that it can be adapted to a wide variety of applications, in a short space of time. Rapidity of fabrication is further ensured with the removal of a post firing requirement.

The effect of this fast fabrication is a technical ceramic solution that performs excellently in challenging environments and can lead to considerable cost reduction for the manufacture of final products.
