Ceramatest™ 500 is a glass bonded sythetic mica ceramic material designed to meet the exacting demands of technical markets. This material is a versatile and efficient electrical and thermal insulating material. Ceramatest 500 is a fully inorganic material used to bridge the performance gap between high performance plastics and structural ceramics. Ceramatest 500 glass bonded mica ceramic is a simultaneous union under high pressure and temperature of finely powdered electrical quality glass and precisely defined (natural or synthetic) mica. The resulting stone-like, dense ceramic material inherits all of the insulating advantages of both components.

Ceramatest™ is available in several machinable grades suitable for processing with standard carbide tools and water (or a water based lubricant) and in moldable grades that do not require firing or sintering after molding. As a result, the material can accommodate metal inserts during molding similar to thermoplastics. CeramaTest™ does not burn or outgas. The material is dimensionally stable at elevated temperatures
  • Max. Continuous Use Temperature is 930° F (500° C)
  • Ceramatest™ 500 is LIGHT GREY in Color
