Silicon Nitride/SSN E

Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) is a unique technical ceramic, available from MACOR as SSN Nilcra(R) SSN E.

SSN Nilcra(R) SSN E grade

Nilcra(R) 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(R) 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:
