Cordierite vs. Forsterite
Both cordierite and forsterite are oxide-based engineering ceramics. There are 8 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (13, in this case) are not shown.
For each property being compared, the top bar is cordierite and the bottom bar is forsterite.
