Siliceous porcelains (Sub-groups C111 and C112) apply in low voltage areas. Porcelains with improved electrical, mechanical and thermal properties are produced by exchanging quartz (SiO) for alumina (AlO). The outstanding properties of aluminous porcelains are: very high strength even under permanent thermal load, and favorable long-term behavior in outdoor conditions. Aluminous porcelain is mostly used for outdoor post insulator. Nowadays VICAR has materials according the norm C111, C120 and C130. Besides, we can develop new products according to customer specifications. </p><p>TITANATES </p><p>Name Norm CEI 60672 </p><p>Firing Temperatu-</p><p>re </p><p>Fired Density </p><p>g/cc </p><p>TEC (25-600) </p><p>10 K Suitable Description </p><p>ALTI-5P-AT Aluminium Titanate </p><p>1380 - 1420 </p><p>3,0 - 3,2 &lt; 0 Pressing Spray-dried powder.

The main characteristic of Alumina Titanate is its exceptional resistance to thermal shock. It is a perfect composition for those products that require a good thermal shock resistance, low conductivity and low moisture. Be-sides, they are chemically inert. Titanates are mainly used in aluminium foundries because of non-wettability with molten metals. </p><p>NOTE: The following tables show a selection of our most common products.

Steatite has excellent dielectric properties, and it has been used for years in electrical engi-neering, electronic and heat engineering. Examples of applications include sockets, control housings, insulating beads, low-voltage power fuses and base plates. Steatites belong to magnesium silicates group (C200 group). The type of flux affects the electrical characteristics and leads to the following differentiation: steatite for low-frequency (C210), normal steatite (C220), and special steatite with "low loss factor" (C221). </p><p>CORDIERITES DENSE CORDIERITES - This group includes dense cordierite, either alkaline earth or zircon based. Cordierite C410 is often found in insulating applications, heating cartridges or electrical engineering. The group C500 includes the aluminosilicate magnesium mate-rials. The most important crystalline phase in these compositions is cordierite (2MgO.2AlO.5MgO), and the most important prop-erty is its low thermal expansion coefficient and its good mechanical resistance. Some examples of applications are the following: insulators for continuous flow electric water heaters, heating element pipes, heating element supports in furnaces, link heaters, heating cartridges for soldering irons, gas heater inserts, spark protectors and catalyst carriers in car industry. </p><p>POROUS CORDIERITES - In the past years, cordierite-based porous ceramics have become more and more important, as light struc-tural materials, thermal insulating or catalyst supports, among other examples. This group includes the sub-groups C510, C511 and C512, which are compositions with different cordierite and porosity contents. Some examples of current applications are: flow electric water heaters, heating element pipes, heating element supports in furnaces, link heaters, heating cartridges for soldering irons, gas heater inserts, spark protectors catalyst carriers in car industry and so on. </p></li><li><p>CORDIERITES </p><p>Name Norm CEI 60672 Firing Temp. </p><p>Fired Density </p><p>g/cc </p><p>TEC (25-600) </p><p>10 K Suitable Description </p><p>COR-22-AT C-410 1300 - 1350 2,3 - 2,5 3,5 - 4,0 Pressing Extrussion </p><p>Spray-dried powder.
