AKA:

Heads, Spacer cores, Swageable Cores, Swageable Insulators

Intro:
Extra Porous MgO cores

This composition is under trials as a potential solution looking for a problem. It is our standard MgO body additional macroscopic pores to augment the natural 30% of microporosity. Trials so far have produced about 10-15% additional pores.

The objective is to produce a ceramic that will deform plastically and maintain physical integrity without crumbling and disintegration. It is not ever likely to replace lava as and end seal in a cartridge heater design, but may facilitate other terminations.

 

USES:

1)  terminal ceramics in cartridge type heaters
2)  possible exploitation of porosity for filtration and media applications.
3)  Your Nobel prize winning idea here…
