Glass-ce­ram­ic ma­te­ri­als share many prop­er­ties with both non-crys­talline glass and crys­talline ce­ram­ic­s. The negative thermal ex­pan­sion of the crys­talline ceramic phase can be balanced with the positive ex­pan­sion of the glassy phase. At a certain point (~70% crys­talline) the glass-ce­ram­ic has a net ex­pan­sion near zero and can sustain repeated and quick tem­per­a­ture changes up to 1000 °C.
