Materion Expands Alumina Ceramic Material Offering with Introduction of Durox® 98

May 4, 2017

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) has introduced Durox® 98 to its Durox family of alumina ceramic materials. Durox 98 is an expansion of Materion's alumina ceramic product portfolio and was developed to accommodate the high demand for an alumina purity grade of 97.6 percent.

The Company's alumina product offerings meet the demands of niche applications for high-purity ceramic material. The new Durox product offers a cost-competitive solution for applications in a wide variety of industries that require dimensional stability and tighter tolerances for electrical insulation in complex high-power products or assemblies.

Materion developed Durox 98 in response to customer demand for materials and applications that do not require the premium performance of beryllium oxide. It allows the Company to expand deeper into markets where existing customers are.

"We're distinguished by our ability to work with customers that need a more detailed approach and parts with complex features that require tighter tolerances or additional customization," said Nick Farrah, Director of Sales and Marketing, Materion Electrofusion and Ceramics. "We can now provide more economical options to our customers with the introduction of Durox 98."
