Premium Machined Lava Parts

Grade "A" Lava is easily machined and can be milled, drilled, tapped and threaded before being hardened. The machined parts are hardened by kiln firing and are only workable by grinding after the hardening process. When fired, Lava becomes very hard with improved mechanical and electrical properties. The Lava material can be held to closer dimensional tolerances than any other ceramic body that is not ground after firing.
Lava is used for coil forms and bars, bobbins and spools, threaded cores, mounting strips, bushings and spacers, standoffs, electronic tube parts, electrical application parts, parts for electrical controls, and miscellaneous parts for electronic applications. Lava is also widely used for gas burner tips, industrial burner tips, welding cups and nozzles and other heat resisting and acid resisting parts. Lava is a machinable ceramic for R & D people.
We would be pleased to submit quotations upon receipt of inquiries that should include drawings and the quantities required. Custom firing can be done at a nominal price.
