Nilcra® SiAlON E 'Engineering Grade'
Nilcra® SiAlON E grade is an exceptionally reliable material designed for applications demanding high strength, 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 out performing most other ceramic materials when used in demanding high temperature conditions.
Nilcra® SiAlON E is a sintered silicon nitride based material containing interlocking grains of beta phase silicon nitride contributing to outstanding durability and performance.
Typical Nilcra® SiAlON E applications include:
- Severe duty valves and pumps
- HF weld rolls for steel & aluminium tube production
- Alumina refining
- Food processing
- Scientific instrumentation
- Wire drawing
- Materials handling
- Molten metals handling
