Description of Cordierite Powder

Made from talc mixed with clay and aluminum oxide. There are no known large deposits of natural cordierite. It has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, high mechanical strength, low density, and low dielectric loss.
1) Chemical Name: Magnesium-alumina silicate / Magnesium iron aluminium cyclosilicate
2) Chemical Formula: (Mg, Fe)2Al4Si5O18
Cordierite Powder Theoretical Analysis: MgO= 13.8%, Al2O3= 34.8% and SiO2= 51.4%

Synonyms of Cordierite Powder

Magnesium aluminosilicate, dichroite, iolite, cordierite, cordierite powder, magnesium alumina silicate, aluminum magnesium silicate, CAS# 1302-88-1
Physical Properties
1) Crushed and sized grain or powder
2) Standard Granulations Available
a) APS= 6 to 7 microns
b) 80% finer than 45 microns

Typical Applications of Cordierite Powder

To manufacture kiln furniture, molded honeycomb-like catalyst supports in auto emission reduction devices, thick films, porous ceramics, feed- thru insulators, vitrified ceramics, high-frequency insulators, high-performance resistors, special furnace shapes, heating element supports, exhaust catalyst supports, burner tubes, refractory setters, and substrates.
Cordierite is not a very common mineral, but is important as a component of glass-ceramic materials used in applications where the material must have minimal thermal expansion (eg cooker hobs).
