Syalon 101 is an advanced silicon nitride (Si₃N₄) ceramic offering outstanding mechanical strength, thermal shock resistance and corrosion resistant properties.
Syalon 101, a silicon nitride based advanced ceramic, is the first of the Si–Al–O–N family of engineering ceramic materials which has been developed, characterised and is now being manufactured under carefully controlled conditions, ensuring a high quality material is consistently produced.
Syalon 101 is a β-sialon type ceramic and is an outstanding engineering grade material which is characterised by high strength, toughness and hardness, and chemical and thermal stability. It has found use in applications demanding wear, corrosion and thermal shock resistance, where temperatures do not continuously exceed 1000°C, such as industrial wear, chemical and process, oil and gas, non-ferrous molten metal handling, and metal forming.
