Silicon Nitride Rods

We provide silicon nitride welding rod, pin and regularly used rods.


Silicon Nitride Rods, Si3N Rod


Silicon nitride ceramic is an inorganic material ceramic that does not shrink during sintering. There are five different methods to produce Silicon Nitride including SRBSN, GPSN, HPSN, HIP-SN and RBSN, make the application and working material different slightly. In these 5 methods of production, GPSN is most commonly used to produce Si3N4 components. The strength of silicon nitride, especially hot-pressed silicon nitride, is one of the hardest substances in the world. Si3N4 Rod is a covalent bond compound with high strength, low density, and high temperature resistance.

The silicon nitride nozzles and covers have the characteristics of oxidation resistance, high temperature strength and less sputter adhesion, which can prolong the service life of the welding parts. We provide silicon nitride welding rod, pin and regularly used rods.

Packing of Silicon Nitride Rod & Welding Pins


As a ceramic material, silicon nitride is quite fragile in a lot of cases. Our silicon nitride rod & welding pins are carefully handled to minimize damage during storage and transportation. Suitable outer boxes and inner cushioning materials are used for Si3N4products, vacuum packing is also engaged for some of the parts.
