Through their subsidiary, The Technical Glass Co. , Goodfellow offers ceramic and glass crucibles in a wide range of shapes, sizes and materials for applications where heat and corrosion resistance are essential.
Standard sizes range from 0.03 ml to multilitre capacity, and materials include alumina (dense or porous), boron nitride, magnesia, quartz, silicon carbide, titanium diboride, vitreous carbon and zirconia.
