About Cordierite Ceramic – Magnesium Aluminum Silicate (2MgO·2Al2O3·5SiO2)

Cordierite ceramics are well known for their low thermal expansion and refractory character. Although cordierite is available as a powder, when we use the term we are generally talking about ceramic that went into the kiln as ordinary composite of ceramic powders but emerges as a cordierite crystalline matrix (grown by the firing process tuned to its needs).
