Nitride Bonded Silicon Carbide

Nitride-bonded silicon carbide boasts superior wear, thermal shock and corrosion resistance as well as low thermal conductivity.

Making Nitride Bonded Silicon Carbide requires mixing raw batch solids with a vehicle, then casting, pouring or injection molding them. After drying and firing the green body produced is dry bonded silicon carbide refractory articles are produced.


Nitron shocks are designed, engineered and manufactured at their international headquarters in Oxfordshire’s MotorSport Valley. Their modular system is tailored for maximum flexibility in design and production – each component precision machined, tested and inspected by trained quality control technicians before being finalised for sale to customers. Utilizing state of the art Dynomometers and 5-Axis CNC machines – Nitron pushes forward suspension technology using state-of-the-art Dynomometers while offering customers more subtle options like black versions if needed.

The Nitron CryoConsole expands upon Medtronic’s established cryoballoon ablation platform by optimizing and elevating workflow for PulseSelect pulsed field ablation (PFA), meeting clinician requirements and satisfying European CE Mark requirements for PulseSelect PFA with Nitron console, further expanding Medtronic’s existing AFib Ablation portfolio.


RBSC is an ideal material choice for applications requiring high temperature resistance, superior oxidation resistance and good wear properties; such as kiln furniture and waste incineration. Furthermore, its excellent thermal conductivity and moderate expansion properties make it suitable for lining process furnaces.

RBSCs are typically manufactured through infiltration of compacted mixtures of silicon carbide and carbon with molten silicon using organic resin that undergoes environmentally unfriendly pyrolysis; leaving behind significant residual silicon in the final material. A novel processing approach was devised in order to minimize this amount in RBSC.

NBSIC can be found in numerous applications, such as kilns, aluminium reduction cells and copper shaft furnaces. Thanks to its superior strength and toughness, this material can withstand the high temperatures present in such systems without degrading under stress or shock; furthermore it features outstanding thermal shock resistance while its non-wetting property makes it suitable for metal contact areas.
