3M™ Silicon Nitride Sand Blast Nozzle Liners offer high hardness and wear resistance, making them an excellent option for blast nozzle liners used in the surface preparation industry.
Delivers More Efficient Surface Preparation
Exhibiting high wear resistance and long component life, 3M™ Silicon Nitride Sand Blast Nozzle Liners are frequently used for abrasive blasting in the surface preparation industry. Made to withstand abrasive media at high velocities, wear-resistant 3M silicon nitride sand blast nozzle liners are harder and tougher than aluminum oxide or tungsten carbide. This results in a longer service life under demanding conditions.
Boost the Performance of Sand Blasting Systems
3M silicon nitride sand blast nozzle liners may be used in both dry blasting and wet blasting operations. When sand blasting larger surface areas, these nozzle liners boost productivity by allowing a higher exit velocity. We offer a variety of silicon nitride nozzle liners for different applications.
Insights into the Advantages of the 3M Manufacturing Process
To maintain optimal quality standards, our 3M™ Silicon Nitride is produced at 3M manufacturing plants using unique compositions and processing techniques. These processes yield a fully dense and nonporous microstructure of interlocking needle-shaped grains. This microstructure toughens the silicon nitride by a crack-deflection process similar to that found in composite materials. The result is a monolithic silicon nitride with extremely high hardness and increased fracture toughness. This can translate to improved mechanical reliability compared to other ceramic materials.
