Industrial Ceramics

Ceramic Materials

C-Mac represents several industrial ceramics suppliers, with many years experience in technical ceramic component manufacturing. Some of the industrial ceramics materials we specialize in are Alumina, Steatite, Cordierite, Zirconia, and MgO.

Alumina – Aluminum Oxide

Alumina is a very hard, dense material of exceptional strength. Alumina exhibits resistance to both high temperature and corrosion. Electrical properties of alumina include high volume resistivity as well as low loss characteristics at high frequencies. We produce many grades of Alumina products by injection moldingdry pressing and extrusion processes. By using these processes and different chemistries, the Alumina properties are enhanced to meet most engineering requirements. Applications for these materials include pump sealstemperature sensorsknife sharpeners and refractory anchorstechnical data sheet

Steatite – Crystalline Magnesium Silicate

Steatite ceramics exhibit excellent electrical properties. By manufacturing different grades of Steatite, we can meet a variety of electrical and mechanical requirements. For general applications, specify L-3. For applications where low electrical loss is critical, specify L-5. The capability to manufacture a wide range of extruded sizes accommodating both resistor and igniter manufacturers. Superior manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce complex products to accommodate the heater and appliance industry. Some component part examples include ceramic heatersceramic resistors and ceramic igniters. Other applications for this steatite ceramics material include thermostatslamp basesapplianceswelding equipment and relaystechnical data sheet

Cordierite – Magnesium Aluminum Silicate

Cordierite ceramics have low coefficients of thermal expansion, providing excellent thermal shock resistance. We manufacture several cordierite grades with different levels of porosity, for a variety of applications including ceramic thermocouplesload banks and kiln furnituretechnical data sheet

Zirconia – Zirconium Oxide

Zirconia is a very hard and durable material, with low thermal conductivity, high strength and flexibility. Because of certain additives, the material has a high resistance to corrosionand a melting point higher than Alumina. Zirconia is used in oxygen sensors as well as other technical applications. technical data sheet

Silicon Nitride – Si3N4

Silicon Nitride Si3N4 ceramics maintain high mechanical strength at high temperatures and has higher chemical corrosion resistance and thermal shock when compared to other ceramic materials.
Applications include hydraulic fracturing or fracking, pipeline, couplings, aerospace, automotive engine components, machine wear surfaces, burner nozzles and molten metal processing components.

Crushable Ceramic Products

C-Mac provides many different crushable ceramics, including Magnesium OxideAluminaand Hafnia. These highly engineered materials are formed by extrusion, dry pressing and slip casting. These ceramic products are used worldwide in cartridge heaters, thermocouples, mineral insulated cable and crucibles.

Magnesia Partially Stabilized Zirconia

Magnesia Partially Stabilized Zirconia are ideal material choices for valve and pump componentsbushings and wear sleevesoil and gas down-hole tools and industrial tooling applicationstechnical data sheet
