L3 Steatite — MC&S's steatite ceramic is ideal for high frequency, low loss, and high voltage insulation. Our L-3 Steatite has good mechanical properties and low loss electrical qualities. It is ideal for resistor forms, igniters, standoffs, surge arrestors, coil forms, spacers, spark plugs, etc. Steatite is easily fabricated to close tolerances and is much less expensive than alumina ceramic insulators.
Cordierite — MC&S's cordierite has excellent thermal shock resistance, withstanding red heat to ice water quench, and then a return to red heat. Our high fire cordierite body will withstand a temperature rise from 70°F to 1800°F in 80 seconds, followed by an immediate room-temperature air quench.
MC&S offers a consistent even grain ceramic structure possessing better density and particle size. Better body composition means less shrinkage and provides advantages in firing operations.
We would be pleased to submit quotations upon receipt of inquiries that should include drawings and the quantities required. Custom firing can be done at a nominal price.
