Steatite – Magnesium Silicate
There are 3 basic types of Steatite, and they are stable up to approx 1000°C
Standard steatite, low cost electrical insulation.
Fishspine / inter-locking beads
Low voltage fuse bodies
Base plate substrates
Washers & bushes ect
Low loss Steatite, also known as Frequentite.
A superior grade of steatite used in cases of high frequency and slightly higher voltages, with better mechanical and dielectric strength & good creep resistance for electrical engineering.
The natural step up from this very popular material is Aluminium oxide.
High voltage fuse bodies
Male / Female split bushes
High voltage lamp caps IR & UV
HF capacitor plates
Thermocouple connector blocks
Switch & plug parts
C230 – Super refractory
A porous high frequency grade for applications of intense thermal shock up to 1050°C. Due to its porous composition, it can be machined without the need for diamond grinding.
