Noralide® NBD-200 Hot Pressed Silicon Nitride

Product Announcement from Saint-Gobain Ceramics - Hexoloy® Products

Noralide® NBD-200 Hot Pressed Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) offers a combination of characteristics that make an ideal material for seal face components in nuclear applications as well as other applications where maximum fracture toughness and flexural strength are required. Hot-Pressed for maximum strength and density, Noralide® Si3N4 provides better fracture resistance than other ceramic materials.

Noralide® Si3N4 meets the requirements of these Nuclear Quality Assurance Standards:

  • NQA-1
  • NQA-1a
  • 10CFR-50, Appendix B
