Low-Expansion Ceramic

Aremcolox 502-1550-LD is a zirconia-phosphate-based machinable ceramic used for producing specialized brazing fixtures, induction liners, wafer chucks, optical stands and combustion nozzles for applications to 1550°C. It is a highly unusual composition due to its low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), which sets it apart from conventional ceramics such as alumina. A low CTE ensures that as a part experiences thermal shock, the mechanical stress caused by its expansion and contraction does not cause the part to crack.
