Porous

  • Alumina

    Alumina

    Alumina (aluminum oxide) is used in a variety of applications up to 800°C to replace metal, plastic, polymer or fabric. Alumina demonstrates excellent resistance to organic solvents and alkaline solutions up to ~50ºC (122°F).

  • Mullite

    Mullite

    Mullite is a silicate mineral of post-clay produced during various melting and firing processes. The chemical composition is critical and influences the mechanical strength and thermal shock resistance. Mullite also has superior corrosion resistance to most chemicals.

  • Silicon Carbide

    Silicon Carbide

    Silicon Carbide (SiC) porous ceramics with a hybrid reaction bond can withstand higher temperatures than traditional glass-bonded porous ceramics. Silicon carbide offers chemical durability, thermal shock and creep resistance for applications up to 1200ºC (2192ºF).

Structural

  • ATZ

    ATZ

    ATZ is produced by combining approximately 80% YTZP (almost entirely as crystalline tetragonal zirconia) with 20% fine grained alumina. The fracture toughness of the metastable tetragonal phase is enhanced by the introduction of the fine grained alumina into the structure.

  • Izory® (Mg-PSZ)

    Izory® (Mg-PSZ)

    Mg-PSZ , TTZ, Izory® and Izory®X is designed for applications requiring low internal and external surface concentrations of defects and has the best resistance to impact or fracture. Izory® components have proven their cost-effective use versus metals for well over 25 years.

  • YTZP

    YTZP

    YTZP Zirconia exists in three different phases: monoclinic, tetragonal, and cubic. YTZP is produced almost entirely as crystalline tetragonal zirconia by incorporating about 3 mol percent yttria, or about 5 weight percent.

Desiccant

  • Durasieve™

    Durasieve™

    Durasieve™ is a revolutionary bonding system developed by Refractron for parts manufactured from activated carbon, alumina or molecular sieve. It offers significant advantages over phosphate and resin bonding systems. Parts manufactured using this system are non-shedding, free of lose particles and strong enough to withstand post-manufacture machining.
