Silicon nitride ceramics offer high thermal, shock, and impact resistance. Silicon nitride ceramics is superior to other materials due to its thermal shock resistance. It does not deteriorate at high temperatures, so it’s used for automotive engines and parts for gas turbines, including the turbocharger rotor. It is widely used in Cutting Tools, Bearing Rolling Elements, Automotive Components (rollers/pads), Oil&Gas Components industry.
Silicon nitride exceeds other ceramics in thermal shock resistance, and it is is superior to other materials due to its thermal shock resistance. It does not deteriorate at high temperatures. Hence it is most appropriate for engine and gas turbine parts, including turbo charger rotors, diesel engine glow plugs and hot plugs. As to the silicon nitride ceramics downstream application, Cutting Tools is its largest downstream market, which shares 28.75% of the consumption in 2016.
The sales of silicon nitride ceramics is through reaction sintering method (RS), Constant-pressing sintering method (CPS), gas-pressing sintering method (GPS), etc. RS is the most popular method for producing silicon nitride ceramics, which takes up 51.14% global consumption in 2016.
At present, the sales of silicon nitride ceramics distributed evenly in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Europe is the largest consumption region of silicon nitride ceramics in the world in the past few years and it will keep the same position in the next few years.
