Macor is an outstanding engineering material and is machinable with ordinary
metalworking tools. Macor is also a problem solving material combining the
performance of a technical ceramic with the versatility of a high performance plastic
Macor has a high use temperature (800°C continuous; 1000°C peak)
Macor has a low thermal conductivity and is a useful high temperature insulator
Macor is an excellent electrical insulator and is used extensively throughout the
semiconductor and electronic industries
Macor has no porosity and when properly baked, will not outgas. Macor is
widely used in ultra high vacuum applications
Macor is strong and rigid. Macor unlike high temperature plastics will not creep or deform
Macor is radiation resistant and plays a key role in nuclear applications and nuclear-related research and
Macor can be thick or thin film metallized, brazed, epoxy and frit bonded
Macor is white and can be highly polished. Macor is the perfect material for medical and optical devices.
