Metal Forming Applications
International Syalons supplies advanced silicon nitride, zirconia, alumina and silicon carbide ceramic solutions for diverse metal forming applications, utilising their outstanding engineering properties.
International Syalons manufacture a range of silicon nitride and sialon and zirconia advanced ceramic products for various metal forming applications, including welding, extrusion and metal cutting.
Advanced technical ceramics for use in metal forming applications must possess excellent mechanical strength and toughness, impact, wear and corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and thermal stability. Syalon and Zircalonceramics meet these requirements and are available in a range of products including:
Sialon cutting tip blanks for milling and turning of cast iron was one of earliest applications of sialon. The latest generation Syalon 101 and Syalon 050 cutting tips possess outstanding wear resistance, thermal shock resistance and chemical stability to allow high-speed milling of cast iron.
