International Syalons supplies advanced silicon nitride, zirconia, alumina and silicon carbide ceramic solutions for diverse thermal applications, ultilising their outstanding refactory nature and thermal stability.
Advanced ceramics are characterised by high melting points and thermal stability. For example, silicon carbide has a melting point of 2730°C. Typical high-temperature applications include the molten metal handling, metal forming and glass production industries. These industries are continually seeking new advanced materials to help extend the life of critical components.
Alumina tube is typically used as a thermocouple protection sheath or as a support for kiln insulation. Silicon carbide can be used as kiln furniture. Silicon nitride is used as a burner nozzle and is the standard material used for non-ferrous molten metal handling applications. Typical high-temperature thermal applications include:
