3M™ Silicon Nitride Tiles are offered in standard geometries with as-fired surfaces to be a quick and economic solution in a variety of applications. These plates are hard, tough, and wear-resistant in a wide variety of conditions including high temperature, corrosive, and erosive environments. Additionally, their long life can help you reduce downtime and total operating cost in your application.
3M™ Silicon Nitride is an extremely hard and corrosion-resistant ceramic material that is 60% lighter than steel. This material, Sintered Silicon nitride (Si₃N₄), is designed to offer a combination of excellent properties, including thermal and impact shock resistance, electrical insulation, and wear resistance. 3M™ Silicon Nitride offers a wide degree of design flexibility, making it an outstanding alternative to stainless steel, superalloys, tungsten carbides, and first-generation ceramics such as Al₂0₃ and ZrO₂. These performance benefits make 3M™ Silicon Nitride a perfect solution for wear plates and tiles.
