Silicon nitride Market: Introduction

Silicon Nitride is an inorganic and non-Metallic compound formed from the reaction of Silicon & Nitrogen at high temperature. It is used as a ceramic Material. Silicon nitride is black or grey in color. Silicon Nitride is prepared by heating powdered silicon between 1300 °C and 1400 °C in a nitrogen environment. The silicon nitride material contains effective amount of sintering aid and effective amount of low dielectric loss promoter. Sintered silicon nitrides, Hot pressed silicon nitride and reaction bonded silicon nitride are the types of Silicon nitride.

Silicon nitride ceramics have better resistance to shock compared to other ceramics. Ball bearings which are made of silicon nitride ceramic are used as a high performance bearing. A representative example is the use of the silicon nitride bearing in one of NASA space shuttle’s main engine.

The wide range of application of silicon nitride include automobile & transportation industry, high temperature material, medical, metal working and electronics. Silicon nitride material is used in niche market applications such as in reciprocating engine components and turbochargers, metal cutting and shaping tool and hot metal handling.

Automobile Industry is one of the important end users of Silicon nitride market, where the material is used in engine parts. It includes pre-combustion Chambers (also known as swirl chamber); glow-plugs for faster startups in vehicles and also in Diesel engines.

Key Properties of Silicon Nitride Material:

  • Low density
