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:
- Severe duty valve trims and pumps
- HF weld rolls for steel & aluminium tube production
- Alumina refining
- Food processing
- Scientific instrumentation
- Wire drawing
- Materials handling
- Molten metals handling
