SILICON NITRIDE IS AN
SILICON NITRIDE CERAMIC
Silicon nitride or silicon nitride ceramic (Si3N4) has the most versatile combination of mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of all technical ceramic materials.
It is a high-performance technical ceramic that is extremely hard and has exceptional thermal shock resistance and impact strength.
It exceeds the high temperature properties of most metals and has an excellent combination of creep and oxidation resistance.
The low thermal conductivity and high wear resistance also make it an excellent material that can withstand the toughest conditions in the most demanding industrial applications. Silicon nitride is an excellent choice when high temperature and high stress capability are required.
