Machined Ceramics

  • When small quantity orders for prototype samples or short production runs do not justify construction of a production tool, our machined ceramics are the best solution.
  • These materials are machined in the "green" state to exacting tolerances and then kiln fired.
  • Standard machined tolerances are 1/2% or 0.005" per inch, with a minimum of 0.005". Tighter tolerances may be available depending upon the specific configuration.
  • Our primary machined ceramics are Alumina Silicate and L-5 Steatite. These materials are well suited for both electrical and high temperature applications. See the table below for the properties of Alumina Silicate and L-5 Steatite. Other machinable materials are also available for specific applications.
  • Machining methods include saw cutting, milling, turning, and grinding.
    Most orders ship within two weeks.
