Porosity Based on Bulk Density

Value Material Description


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). View Material

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). View Material


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. View Material
