PYROCERAM 590024

PYROCERAM signifies a new family of finegrained crystalline materials called glass-ceramics. These materials are made by a process of controlled crystallization from special compositions containing nucleating agents.
The materials are valuable particularly because of their resistance to high temperatures and chemical attack. They are classed as heat and electrical insulators.
A major use of these new materials is in the structural parts for hypersonic aircraft.
