Silicon Nitride/SSN E
Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) is a unique technical ceramic, available from Morgan as SSN Nilcra® SSN E.
SSN Nilcra® SSN E grade
Nilcra® SSN E is an exceptionally reliable, hard-wearing and nonporous silicon nitride; a high strength ceramic designed for applications demanding high durability, toughness, corrosion, and wear resistance even at very high temperatures (up to 1,000°C [1,832°F]).
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® SSN E is a sintered silicon nitride based ceramic material containing interlocking grains of beta phase silicon nitride contributing to outstanding durability and performance.
Morgan's SSN E is suitable for a range of applications:
- Severe duty valve trims and pumps
- HF weld rolls for steel & aluminium tube production
- Materials handling
- Semiconductor applications
- Precision balls and bearings
