These durable ceramic machine screws are available in thread sizes down to #0-80 and possess the stiffness and rigidity of a monolithic ceramic. Ceramic screws are produced using low pressure injection molded ceramics utilizing a 99.8% fully dense aluminum oxide (Alumina A998). Non-magnetic Alumina is chemically inert and resistant to abrasions, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. These qualities as well as biocompatibility make these screws a beneficial option for medical and laboratory applications. These fasteners also have excellent insulation qualities and are resistant to corrosion and high temperatures of up to 2000°C. They also possess a thermal expansion coefficient to efficiently match other materials surrounding them.
Application Examples ▼
Ceramic products are commonly used in refractories, abrasives, instrumentation, bio-medical devices, coatings and other laboratory applications. Welding tools and heat treating equipment also utilize this material. They also are beneficial in applications needing non-magnetic material. Ceramic screws are found in medical lighting and certain instrumentation needed for heat and corrosion resistance. Component Supply seeks to assist researchers and product designers in determining the best products for their specific applications.
