Professional Plastics Signs Master Distributor Agreement with Corning Macor®

Press release date: February 27, 2014

Orchard Park, NY — Professional Plastics, Inc. has recently signed a Master Distribution Agreement with Corning, Inc. for the distribution and fabrication of Macor® Machinable Glass Ceramic parts and shapes.    As a leading supplier of engineering plastics and ceramics with 18 locations in the USA, Singapore and Taiwan, Professional Plastics, will fill a key role in introducing Macor® to a broad global audience.    

Macor® is a high-performance technical ceramic that combines the versatility of a high performance polymer, with the stability and the machinability of a soft metal.  As a result, Macor® can be fabricated into highly complex shapes, using conventional metalworking tools.  It's unique composition comprises 55% fluorophlogopite mica and 45% borosilicate glass.  When combined with Corning's unique production process, this results in a microstructure that is a key to its versatile properties.  Macor® is a white, non-wetting, odorless and non outgassing material that exhibits zero porosity.  This material offers extremely tight tolerance capabilities, allowing complicated shape design (optimal performances up to +/- 0.013 mm for dimensions, < 0.5="" µm="" for="" finished="" surface="" and="" up="" to="" 0.013="" µm="" for="" polished="" surface). ="" macor®="" remains="" continuously="" stable="" at="" 800="" °c,="" with="" a="" maximum="" peak="" at="" 1000°c="" under="" no="" load,="" and="" unlike="" ductile="" materials,="" doesn't="" creep="" or="" deform. ="" its="" coefficient="" of="" thermal="" expansion="" readily="" matches="" most="" metals="" and="" sealing="" glasses. ="" as="" an="" electric="" insulator,="" particularly="" at="" high="" temperatures,="" it="" is="" excellent="" at="" high="" voltages="" and="" a="" broad="" spectrum="" of="">
