Silicon Nitride Synthesis

Silicon nitride offers solutions to problems faced in industries that require high-temperature, high-strength materials and very small allowable tolerances.

 Silicon nitride (Si3N4) is a naturally formed material created during the development of the earth due to the ammonia-rich atmosphere, silicon-rich crust and high temperatures.Silicon nitride was first developed synthetically in 1859 by Deville and Wöhler, resulting in a patent filed in Germany.
