Macor is a relatively easy material to machine using ordinary carbide drills, end mills, taps, etc. and doesn’t require post machining firing. Macor-Machinable Glass Ceramic is also unique in that it can withstand 1000°C, has low thermal conductivity and is a good electrical insulator. Macor is often the material of choice because it is easy to machine into complex shapes, doesn’t require sintering and is, readily available even in small quantities.

With MACOR® Machinable Glass Ceramic (MGC), fabrication is fast because it can be machined into complicated parts with ordinary metal working tools, quickly and inexpensively, and it requires no post firing after machining. That means no frustrating delays, no expensive hardware, no post fabrication shrinkage, and no costly diamond tools to meet specifications.
The Point is this:
When you need the performance of a technical ceramic (high use temperature, electrical resistivity, zero porosity) and your application demands the ready fabrication of a complicated shape (quickly, precisely, privately), look at MACOR® MGC. It will lower costs and substantially reduce the time between design and actual use.
