The type of seal that will be best for your needs depends on which industrial application you will be using it for. In this short article, you will learn about the differences between glass-to-metal and ceramic-to-metal seals.

Ceramic-to-Metal Seals

Ceramic can withstand higher temperatures than glass, so ceramic-to-metal seals are best used in environments with very high voltages and operating temperatures. One thing to keep in mind if you go with the ceramic-to-metal option is that due to the increased amount of labor it takes to make one of these, your wait time may be longer after placing your order.

Glass-to-Metal Seals

Glass is a good option to go for if the environment involves electrical currents, due to its insulating qualities. It is also ideal for a high-pressure environment, even though its temperature threshold is lower than that of ceramic.
