is magnesium silicate
has good Mechanical Strength
volume resistively up to 1000 degree C
is commonly used in appliance thermostats
where a high temperature electrical
insulator is needed that will hold its
shape and size and will not wear out
during the life of the device.
works very well in cold switching applications.
is used to support heating elements
in electric heaters, toasters, and ovens.
is a good high voltage insulator. It
holds up under thousands of volts without
ceramic parts are usually small and
are formed from dry powder in a compaction
press. The parts are then fired in the
kiln. Diamond abrasives are used to
grind parts to size for high tolerance
