Forsterite is a mineral magnesium silicate used in technical ceramics due to its excellent properties. It is characterised by low microwave losses, excellent insulation at high temperatures, and a smooth surface, making it suitable for producing electron tube parts and circuit substrates. Because of its high coefficient of thermal expansion, forsterite bonds easily with metal and glass. The material is not only mechanically and thermally stable but also electrically insulating and chemically resistant. Therefore, products made of forsterite are often used in demanding applications where extreme conditions prevail, such as in the chemical industry, semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, or medical technology.

Our forsterite products offer high quality and reliability to meet your requirements. You can choose from various shapes and sizes that can be customised to meet your needs.

The most important properties of Forsterit (2MgO, SiO2) in brief:

  • Mechanical stability
  • Thermal stability
  • Electrical insulation
  • Chemical stability
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • High corrosion resistance
