Material Properties

Porcelain classic shaped crucibles in high, medium and low form, glazed on the inside and out, except on the bottom. Withstands temperature to 1150°C (2102°F).

To prevent thermal stress cracks, a heating/cooling rate not exceeding 200°C per hour is strongly recommended.

  • DATA MEASUREMENTS – All data measurements are typical and made at room temperature unless otherwise noted.
  • THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE – Tests are run by quenching samples into water from various elevated temperatures. The change in temperature where a sharp decrease in flexural strength is observed is listed as ‘delta Tc’.
  • CHEMICAL RESISTANCE – Although all alumina and zirconia ceramics are highly resistant to chemical attack, it is recommended that specific applications are discussed with Almath Crucibles to ensure optimum ceramic selection.
