Morgan Advanced Ceramics RBSN Reaction bonded silicon nitride Mac-RBSNS
Categories: Ceramic; Nitride

Material Notes: An advanced synthetic ceramic with a nominal Si3N4 content of 99%. Reaction bonded silicon nitride (RSBN) is made by directly reacting compacted silicon powder with nitrogen to produce porous components of relatively low density and possessing exceptional thermal.

Prime Features:

  • Porous, low density material
  • Exceptional resistance to thermal downshock
  • Excellent resistance to wetting and attack by molten non-ferrous alloys containing aluminum, magnesium, copper, zinc and lead.
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Good electrical resistance
Typical Applications:
  • Welding jigs and fixtures
  • Molten non-ferrous metal handling systems
  • Riser tubes and transfer tubes
  • Delivery systems and degassing systems
  • Special crucibles
Production Capabilities:
  • Net shape forming
  • Prototype, batch and volume production
