Glass Ceramics

Glass ceramics have many notable advantages. Some of those are thermal shock resistance, heat insulation, high strength, toughness, high temperature stability and isolation capabilities to name a few.

Within Advanced Optics, there are three main products that are available at an industrial scale:

  • MACOR®
  • Corning® PYROCERAM® Glass Code 9606
  • Corning Glass Ceramic

Our Products

MACOR®

MACOR®

MACOR® is a recognized machinable glass ceramic used in many industry fields. It gives the performance of a technical ceramic with the versatility of a high-performance polymer, while providing the machinability of a soft metal. MACOR® can be made into very complex shapes providing tight tolerance capability Its thermal and electrical insulation properties makes it also suitable in many different applications.

More recently, Corning developed a new glass ceramic composition with a low CTE for better thermal shocks resistance and ability to be ion exchangeable for improved mechanical properties. This product had been developed under a thin sheet shape, about 60mm width and 1mm thin. Other bar shapes are also available.
