What is it?

Ceramic cordierite is a silicate of aluminium and magnesium, widely used in applications requiring high resistance to thermal shock.

Properties and uses

Ceramic cordierite is useful due to its low thermal dilation and good electrical insulation properties in comparison with other ceramic materials. It can be moulded into a variety of complex shapes using a range of production processes including axial pressing, isostatic pressing, injection moulding and extrusion. Its low thermal expansion and heat conductivity make it a good option for the mechanics sector.

Properties of cordierite:

  • Good resistance to thermal shock
  • Low thermal dilation
  • Low heat conductivity
  • High dielectric strength

Products made using cordierite:

  • Electrical insulators
  • Insulators for household appliances
  • Refractory materials
  • Thermocouples
