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.



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