MACOR® glass ceramic consists of a glass matrix containing mica crystals. Its composition of 55 % fluorophlogopite mica and 45 % borosilicate glass gives rise to a microstructure that can be machined into complex shapes with conventional metalworking tools.
Two of the biggest strengths of MACOR® glass ceramic are that it is a non-porous, non-outgassing material. In combination with its outstanding properties as a thermal and electrical insulator, MACOR® is ideal as a material for use in almost all sectors.
