|Fused silica is a noncrystalline (glass) form of silicon dioxide (quartz, sand). Typical of glasses, it lacks long range order in its atomic structure. It’s highly cross linked three dimensional...|
|High use temperature Non-flammable Excellent electrical insulator Excellent thermal insulator Dimensionally stable MACOR machinable glass ceramic gives you the characteristics you need from a ceramic with the added benefit of...|
|Macor is cast as a two phase glass. After casting, it is heat treated causing crystallization of one phase giving rise to its glass-like and ceramic-like characteristics. Macor exhibits good...|
