Silicon Nitride: Industrial Applications for the Future

SINTX manufactures some of the strongest and most innovative silicon nitride (Si3N4) on the planet. With this material, we are constantly developing uses for manufacturing, consumer products, and more. From extreme strength for industrial application to antiviral coatings for personal use, we are pushing the limits of what is possible with silicon nitride. Looking at the industrial market, silicon nitride is the ideal material due to its strength, toughness, and wear resistance under a variety of conditions and temperatures.

A solution for severe environments 

SINTX’s Industrial Silicon Nitride has the best combination of mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of any technical ceramic material. This makes it ideal for use in manufacturing:

Aerospace Materials

Industrial Silicon Nitride can effectively replace legacy materials used in ball bearings, radomes, and RF windows for extreme aerospace applications

Automotive

Owing to its excellent thermal shock resistance compared to other industrial ceramics in the automotive industry, Industrial Silicon Nitride can be used for the fabrication of high-performance all-ceramic or hybrid steel-ceramic rolling contact bearings.

Cutting Tools

Industrial Silicon Nitride can cut cast iron and hard steel as well as nickel-based alloys with surface speeds up to 25 times faster than conventional machining materials.

Energy

In fuel cells and batteries that change chemical to electrical energy, Industrial Silicon Nitride can withstand the corrosive nature and high temperatures required to operate.

Industrial Silicon Nitride exhibits quality and performance that exceeds other materials, making it one of the best materials to use for industrial applications.
