Silicon nitride High strength especially when hot-pressed silica nitride. This is the hardest material in the world. It can withstand high temperatures without melting and maintains its strength up to 1200°C. After being heated it does not melt, and is not likely to decompose after 1900degC.
It is extremely resistant to chemical corrosion. It is resistant to almost all organic acids, caustic soda solutions lower than 30% and many organic acids. You can also use it as an electrical insulation material.

It has excellent characteristics and is used to create bearings, turbine blades and mechanical seal rings.

Silicon Nitride Use in Refractory Industries

Due to their outstanding high-temperature characteristics, including high strength and wear resistance as well as corrosion resistance, Silicon Nitride Ceramics are being considered promising.

(1) Use in ironmaking and refractories
The development of corundum -silicon carbide -siliconnitride-carbon products has been remarkable in recent years. But silicon oxynitride, silica nitride, or silicon carbide-refractory product combined with silicon carbide have been extensively used in the large blast furnace middle section and load bearing parts of coke ovens.

(2) Steelmaking refractories
The bottom of ladles used for skateboards have been made from silicon nitride in recent years. Addition of silicon nitride to the slide plates improves its wear resistance, erosion resistance, and service life. It also reduces the steel cost per ton for ladle refining.

(3) For the refractory melt of nonferrous metals like aluminum, copper and zinc.
Silicon nitride clays are resistant to wetting with high-temperature metal solutions. This means it is suitable for use in non-ferrous metals melting processes, including thermowells, furnace linings and other container linings. Crucibles can also be made from silicon nitride pottery. Silicon nitride ceramic products have good thermal shock resistance and can be used stably for a long time at high temperatures or in high-temperature-low-temperature cycles.

(4) Application in kiln furniture materials
The ceramic shed, a silicon-nitride bonded silicone carbide material, is prepared by reaction Sintering under high temperatures nitrogen atmosphere using silicon carbide and metal Si as particle raw materials. This significantly improves the material’s performance.
