Machinable Glass Ceramics

Machinable Glass Ceramics has a continuous use temperature of 800℃ and a peak temperature of 1000℃. Its coefficient of thermal expansion readily matches most metals and sealing glasses. It processes good machinability and can be lathed, milled, planed, ground, bored, incised and threaded. It also has the advantages of insulation, pore-free, high/low-temperature resistant, acid and alkali resistant and thermal impact resistant.
