Nilcra® Sialon E 'Silicon Nitride Engineering Grade'

Nilcra® Sialon E grade is an exceptionally reliable hard-wearing nonporous silicon nitride based high strength ceramic designed for applications demanding high durability, toughness, corrosion, and wear resistance even at very high temperatures (1000°C).

Additionally, its low coefficient of thermal expansion combined with high strength and toughness provides excellent thermal shock resistance outperforming most other ceramic materials when used in demanding high temperature conditions.

Nilcra® Sialon E is a sintered silicon nitride based ceramic material containing interlocking grains of beta phase silicon nitride contributing to outstanding durability and performance.

Typical Nilcra® Sialon E applications include:
