Cordierite

Cordierite is an extremely low thermal expansion ceramic which was developed over two decades back, and we have been constantly improving on its characteristics since.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Minimal temperature deformation due to dense cordierite ceramic with an extremely low thermal expansion rate
  • Approx. 70% weight reduction when compared to low CTE glass* with a slim ribbed structure design featuring high rigidity
  • Rapid process time even for complex designs due to good machinability
