3M™ Silicon Nitride Metal Forming Rolls are engineered to last longer and eliminate metal buildup in the formation of copper rod and stainless steel tubing. With less metal buildup, these forming rolls help boost quality while reducing material waste.
3M™ Silicon Nitride Metal Forming Rolls feature the strength, wear-resistance and, non-porous texture necessary for the efficient production of metal tubing. 3M™ Silicon Nitride, a lightweight, high-strength ceramic material, is used as an alternative to stainless steel, superalloys, tungsten carbides, and first-generation ceramics such as Al₂0₃ and ZrO₂. It offers excellent thermal shock resistance, high fracture toughness, and compatibility with nonferrous metal melts.
