Silicon Nitride/SSN E

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

SSN Nilcra® SSN E grade

Nilcra® 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® 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:
