Crystex Products At A Glance

Mykroy/Mycalex® is available in machineable grades suitable for processing with standard carbide tools and water (or a water-based lubricant) and in moldable grades that do not require firing or sintering after molding. As a result, the material can accommodate metal inserts during molding similar to thermoplastics. Mykroy/Mycalex® does not burn or outgas. The material is dimensionally stable at temperatures ranging from -240°C to 800°C.

Mykroy/Mycalex® is the only fully inorganic material to bridge the performance gap between high-performance plastics and structural ceramics.  Mykroy/Mycalex® glass bonded mica ceramic is a simultaneous union under high pressure and temperature of the finely powered electrical quality glass and precisely defined (natural or synthetic) mica.  The resulting stone-like, dense ceramic material inherits all of the insulating advantages of both components.
