Shapal M Soft Ceramic technical data
Shapal is a Machinable, technical ceramic with a high mechanical strength and thermal conductivity. It is based on the worlds first translucent aluminium nitride ceramic. Shapal ceramic unique characteristics make it suitable for a wide range of applications in the vacuum and nuclear industries. It has zero porosity, low our gassing rates, is not affected by most etch plasmas or ionizing radiation and easily joins to its self or other materials.
The raw material is first cast and fired in blocks. The raw material, composition and furnace procedure enable the finished ceramic to be turned with conventional metal working tooling. This fact, with Shapal's unique thermal and electrical properties make it an ideal material for semiconductor and surface science components and fixtures. It is slightly more difficult than its brother material Macor to machine, but sub micron tolerances and surface finishes can be readily achieved.
