What is it?
Silicon nitride is a monolithic ceramic displaying exceptional hardness and resistance to fracturing, as well as other properties that make it extremely valuable in a huge number of applications.
Thanks to its toughness, thermal stability and resistance to wear, this material is used to make tools for cutting, sharpening and extrusion, and for specific high-speed mechanical processes on cast iron.
Silicon nitride is exceptionally effective in applications subject to thermal shock and stress due to high loads (e.g. welding rods); it is particularly useful in processes carried out at very high temperature requiring appropriate electrical insulation; it is also an excellent solution in hydraulics and extrusion, being a key product for tools, nozzles, tubes and conduits.
