Fabceram 45 is a gray ceramic that can be machined into any shape using conventional machine shop practices. Without further processing, it can be used at temperatures to 1100F (595C) as insulators, stand offs, and other fixtures. The material can be used in soldering and brazing fixtures because metals and solders won't stick to it. Applications include electronics processing, kiln furniture, glass molds, some plastic and rubber molds and abrasion resistance.
