MACOR® Machinable Glass Ceramic

Almath Crucibles offers a variety of MACOR® Machinable Glass Ceramic Products.

MACOR® can be considered a unique, technical material with a composition comprising 55% fluorophlogopite mica and 45% borosilicate glass. The white, ordorless and non-outgassing material exhibits zero porosity and is favoured due to its ability to machined with ordinary metalworking/machining tools rather than more expensive diamond tooling required to machine hard materials such as alumina.

MACOR® comes with a wide range of benefits:

  • Easily machinable
  • Withstands high temperatures
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Holds tight tolerances
  • Electrical insulator
  • Zero porosity and no outgassing
  • Strong & rigid
  • Highly polishable
  • Can be soldered to a wide range of material
  • Radiation resistant
