Corning® Pyroceram® for Missile Radomes

Corning produces an extremely durable, proprietary material, Pyroceram, for use in missile radomes. The glass ceramic material, produced by Corning since the 1950s, is opaque, white in color, and has high strength, high elastic modulus, and uniform dielectric properties.

It can be manufactured on ogival shapes, hemispheres, pressware sheets and various machined shapes. Corning also has the machining capability to machine and finish other radome materials.
