Fabrication of Machinable Silicon Carbide‐Boron

When the nanocomposite powders were hot‐pressed at 1850°C, machinable SiC/BN ceramic nanocomposites with fine grain size and homogeneous microstructure were fabricated. The composite that contained 20 wt% BN exhibited high strength (the three‐point bending strength was 588.4 ± 26.8 MPa) and excellent machinability.

Silicon nitride - Wikipedia

Silicon nitride is a chemical compound of the elements silicon and nitrogen. Si 3 N 4 is the most thermodynamically stable of the silicon nitrides. Hence, Si 3 N 4 is the most commercially important of the silicon nitrides when referring to the term "silicon nitride". It is a white, high-melting-point solid that is relatively chemically inert, being attacked by dilute HF and hot H

Silicon Nitride - Precision Ceramics

Silicon Nitride can be machined in green, biscuit, or fully dense states. While in the green or biscuit form it can be machined relatively easily into complex geometries. However, the sintering process that is required to fully densify the material causes the Silicon Nitride body to shrink approximately 20%. This shrinkage means that it is impossible to hold very tight tolerances when
