Nanoker produces ceramic components and tailor made products from KA-EDM. Electroconductive Alumina Composite (KA-EDM) is manufactured by pressure-assisted sintering (SPS). It is a high toughness electroconductive alumina based composite and suitable for EDM machining. The main properties of KA-EDM are: Suitability for extreme hardness applications, very good dimensional stability, excellent chemical resistance in the most demanding environments.

This material data has been provided by Nanoker.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
