Silicon Nitride Ceramic
Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) has the most versatile combination of mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of any technical ceramic material. It is a high performance technical ceramic that is extremely hard and has exceptional thermal shock and impact resistance. It surpasses most metals high temperature capabilities and has a superior combination of creep and oxidation resistance. Additionally, its low thermal conductivity and high wear resistance make it an excellent material that can withstand the toughest of conditions in the most demanding industrial applications. Silicon Nitride is an excellent choice when high-temperature and high-load abilities are needed. Silicon nitride ceramic is an inorganic material ceramic that does not shrink during sintering. There are five different methods to produce Silicon Nitride including SRBSN, GPSN, HPSN, HIP-SN and RBSN, make the application and working material different slightly. In these 5 methods of production, GPSN is most commonly used to produce Si3N4 components. The strength of silicon nitride, especially hot-pressed silicon nitride, is one of the hardest substances in the world.
