Silicon Nitride and Sialon. In this section we discuss both silicon nitride and sialon, a material with similar properties. Silicon nitride, Si3N4, exhibits very high resistance to heat and corrosion, and is exceptionally strong. Sialon, a family of siliconaluminum-silica oxynitrides, has properties comparable to those of silicon nitride, and is much easier to manufacture and form into complex shapes. SILICON NITRIDE. Because pure Si3N4 powders are difficult to sinter, several methods are used to achieve finished parts of desired size and shape, and the processing technology used has a significant affect on the physical properties of the finished part.

63 Because three later chapters of this handbook are devoted to glass, the subject will be dealt with only briefly here. The intent will be to show how glasses and ceramics compare in their various characteristics. 24, taken from Mattox,63 show the properties and compositions of the most widely used glasses. Two points regarding the data in the tables need to be made: (1) Thermal expansion data are for temperatures well below the softening temperature. Glasses undergo an abrupt increase in thermal expansion within 20 to 50°C of the softening temperature.

0 g/cm3 its properties improve. Schwartz5 has compiled an extensive list of aluminas of various compositions from a number of manufacturers. He found that flexural strength of 300 MPa and fracture toughness of 4 MPa ⋅ m1/2 were typical values. Flexural strength varied from 150 to over 500 MPa, and fracture toughness ranged from 3 to 6 MPa ⋅ m1/2. Weibull moduli, not frequently reported, were generally low—8 to 10. The 85 percent grade is a general-purpose grade regarded as the workhouse of the industry.
