In aluminium casting technology, silicon nitride materials are well established for many applications and represent the state of the art.
In addition to high strength and thermal shock resistance, another main advantages of this material in this case is, above all, the advantageous wetting characteristics when in contact with aluminium and non-ferrous metal melts.
This can reduce the build-up of metal and slag, which has a positive effect on the service life of the components.
You may count on us as a development partner for foundry technology. Further areas of application, including those that are enabled by modified materials, are being tested or developed.
