Cordierite is a high-performance ceramic material used in various industries due to its excellent properties. Cordierite is characterised by its extremely low thermal expansion and excellent mechanical properties. It is also very lightweight and has approximately 70 % less mass than glass, which has a low coefficient of thermal expansion.

The most important material properties of cordierite (2MgO, 2Al2O, 5SiO2) in brief:

  • Extremely low thermal expansion
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Low weight
  • High heat resistance
  • Fast and efficient heat conduction
