Application and Market Analysis of Silicon Nitride Ceramics

Silicon Nitride Powder Property
A covalent bond compound consisting of silicon nitride and nitrogen (Si3N4). It was found in 1857. Silicon nitride is used extensively in aviation, military and other mechanical applications.

Preparation Evaluation of Silicon Nitride Ceramics

Silicon nitride is first prepared by obtaining silicon nutride powder. Once the powder has been obtained, then molds, sintering, or any other processing can be used to make silicon nanorite ceramic. These methods include the following: silicon powder Nitride method, liquid Phase Reaction method and Self-propagating High Temperature Synthesis method.
You can form silicon nitride ceramics by using dry pressing or cold isostatic presses. Tape casting is another process. And hot pressing sintering is hot, isostatic and spark plasma.

Silicon Nitride Ceramics Application for Mechanical Industry

Silicon nitride pottery is most commonly used as valves.

A silicon nitride bearing bearing ball can move at speeds as fast as 600000 revolutions/minute. These bearings are used mostly in precision machine-tool spindles, motorized high speed bearings, aerospace engines as well as automotive engine bearings.

In comparison to steel ball, the silicon-nitride ceramic bearingball has many outstanding benefits.

Dense Si3N4 ceramics show high fracture toughness. high modulus and self lubricity. These characteristics allow them to withstand various wear environments, such as high temperature extremes and large-temperature difference.

Silicon Nitride Market Analysis

Japanese Kyocera are still the main producers of high quality silicon nitride products. European, American, and Japanese companies are all dominant.

According to MARKETSANDMARKETS (global market research firm), the global silicon nitride market will expand at a compound annual increase rate of 5.8% between 2020-2027. The current market is valued at $1.4 Million in 2020. This amount should rise to $149,000,000 by 2027.
