Machinable technical ceramic


FINAL Advanced Materials Provides a full range of high temperature machinable technical ceramics according to your drawings.

Machinable technical ceramics presentation

A precise definition of dense ceramic materials, very close to most known sintered ceramics, in use in all technologies where heat resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, mechanical strength are criteria justifying their use. However, these ceramics involve a specific equipment and know-how in terms of mechanical machining or shaping.

On the contrary, machinable technical ceramics are easily manufactured by means of conventional machine tools. These ceramics can be sawn, drilled, milled, turned with classic tools, available in all general mechanical workshops.

Machinable technical ceramics allow the production of small series parts, as well as validation prototypes. A single ceramic cannot meet all the requirements and all the requests, that is why we have developed over the years, a full range of easily machinable ceramic materials, capable of responding to a maximum of constraints. The tables below will help you to choose the most appropriate product according to your application.



Machinable alumina presentation

Cotronics Rescor 960 is a 96% Alumina, Machinable Ceramic that is usable to 1650°C. It is manufactured from high purity alumina by a unique process.  
Machining can be accomplished with conventional tooling on standard shop equipment. No heat treatment is required.    
Rescor 960 Machinable Alumina can be used continuously to temperatures of 1650°C and offers the convenience and economy of an in house capability for Alumina parts.
The chemical, thermal and electrical properties of Rescor 960 is equivalent to standard high alumina ceramics.   



MACOR® presentation

MACOR® machinable glass ceramic is recognized worldwide to be a major technological innovation, as well as a technical solution for a wide range of industrial applications.Opening a wide range of possibilities MACOR gives the performance of a technical ceramic with the versatility of a high performance polymer, while providing the machinability of a soft metal.As a result, MACOR is an outstanding engineering material which can quickly be designed into highly complex shapes, using conventional metalworking tools.



Aluminium nitride presentation

It is an electrical insulating refractory material having very high thermal conductivity ( higher than that of copper at 200°C) and showing high resistance to oxidation and abrasion. Unlike sintered ceramics, machining with conventional tools is possible.

This aluminum nitride has equivalent characteristics to Shapal M while being economically more interesting.

This ceramic is available in bars (maxi D.58x300mm), in plates (maxi 315x200x60mm) or in parts machined by ourselves according to plans.



Boron nitride presentation


Boron nitride is a white solid material in the as produced hot pressed form. It is a low porosity solid. It is easily machined into complex shapes using standard carbide tooling. The material is anisotropic in its electrical and mechanical properties due to the hexagonal crystals and their orientation during the hot press consolidation.

Due to the densification method used, the physical properties of the material are different according to the perpendicular and parallel axis to the direction of sintering. Boron nitride is non toxic.

3 available grades :
 - NB, Boron Nitride with binder, machinable
 - NB HP, high purity Boron Nitride without binder, machinable
 - NB HD, high density Boron Nitride, sintered



Quartz presentation

The electrical fusion process uses resistance heating to melt highly refined quartz sand into semi finished quartz glass products. Electrically fused quartz glass is characterized by :

  • High purity level
  • Low bubble content
  • High homogeneity
  • Excellent thermal shock resistance
  • High visible and IR transmission
  • Very good thermal insulation
  • Maximum temperature 1300°C (1100°c continuously)



Shapal M - Aluminium nitride presentation

It is an electrical insulating refractory material having very high thermal conductivity ( higher than that of copper at 200°C) and showing high resistance to oxidation and abrasion. Unlike sintered ceramics, machining with conventional tools is possible.

This ceramic is available in bars (maxi D.58x300mm), in plates (maxi 315x200x60mm) or in parts machined by ourselves according to plans.



Alumina silicate, machinable ceramic presentation


Aluminia Silicate is a pyrophyllite rock. The ore that we have selected, features exceptional mechanical and thermal performances. After treatment at high temperature, the material acquires similar properties to those of known synthetic ceramics.

This material allows to solve with a remarkable implementation flexibility, problems that arise in laboratories and engineering consultants of all industries where ceramics are essential for their :

  • Dielectric and thermal insulating property
  • Resistance to chemical agents
  • Stability and shape accuracy
  • Heat resistance up to 1300 ° C
  • Excellent resistance to high vacuum (up to 10-8 torr)

This material is machined with a conventional tooling, sawing, milling, drilling, turning.



Machinable glass ceramic Vitro 800  presentation

Vitro 800 machinable glass ceramic is an economic alternative to Macor. It is available in bigger dimension, bars from Ø70 to 250 mm and boards up to thickness 60 mm.
