Advantages of Mykroy/Mycalex Material

  • Fully inorganic, non-Flammable, does not burn, out-gas carbonized.

  • High arc resistance.

  • High dielectric strength and low electrical loss.

  • Low thermal conductivity making Mykroy/Mycalex an excellent thermal insulator.

  • Withstands thermal cycling.

  • Exceptional dimensional stability throughout the usable temperature range for each material grade.

  • Impervious to moisture, oils and gasses.

  • Does not age – has unlimited shelf life.

  • Can accommodate metal inserts during molding,

  • Can be molded into complex shapes.

  • Can be drilled, bored or tapped with standard carbide tooling, water or a water-based lubricant.

  • No Post firing after molding or machining.

  • Vacuum tight in both machined and molded forms without metal inserts.

  • Can be bonded to other Mykroy/Mycalex pieces using epoxy, ceramic adhesive or sealing glass.

  • Moldable and machinable similar to plastics.
