Miniature, Alumina Ceramic Components

Dry-pressed alumina components are available with outer dimensions ranging from 0.020 to 2 in. and minimum wall thicknesses and lengths of 0.010 and 0.008 in., respectively.

Dry-pressed alumina parts resist wear and corrosion for longer life and provide high electrical insulation, mechanical strength, and thermal conductivity. Additionally, parts will be electrically and dimensionally stable up to 3,092°F (1,700°C). Alumina components are manufactured to net shape and can range in purity from 85 to 99.5%.
