New kiln furniture can handle temperatures up to 1,500ºC

20 September 2015

Morgan Advanced Materials has introduced a range of kiln furniture made from a new high-performance nitrite-bonded silicon carbide material suitable for use at temperatures of up to 1,500ºC.

The material, known as Halsic-N, combines the properties of proven materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and silicon nitride (Si3N4) in a microstucture which delivers strength, excellent refractory properties and resistance to oxidation and thermal shock.

Standard designs available include setter plates (illustrated), beams and supports in a range of sizes, while components can also be manufactured to meet customers’ own requirements.
Thermocouple protection tubes made from Halsic-N are ideal for the melting of non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and magnesium, where its strong metal-repelling characteristics help ensure long service life and optimum performance.

With flexural strength of 160MPa, Halsic-N can even be coated with a specially formulated coating for the firing of porcelain or technical ceramics.
