Silicon Nitride

The ceramic material silicon nitride is an all-around talent among technical ceramics due to its excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. With its high strength, fracture toughness, outstanding thermal shock resistance as well as its great wear and impact resistance, silicon nitride is suitable for various applications. However, this material can do even more. Lightweight structures can also be optimally realised thanks to the material's low density and high strength – a plus for aerospace and many other industries. We offer our silicon nitride in different qualities, depending on your individual requirements.

The most important material properties of silicon nitride in brief:

  • Very good strength up to high-temperature ranges (>1200°C)
  • Excellent wear and impact resistance
  • High hardness
  • Fracture toughness
  • Low thermal expansion
  • Relatively low thermal conductivity
  • Superior thermal shock resistance
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
