Key Takeaways
  • Silicon nitride balls are manufactured with the help of fine silicon nitride powder, which acts as a raw material. Aluminum oxide and yttrium oxide are used as sintering aids.
  • A binder is added to the slurry with the help of spray drier. The slurry is then granulated to ball-shaped uniform particles. After that, forming and dewaxing processes are carried out for the removal of organic material from the mixture. Finally, under high pressure and high temperature gas atmosphere, a tough sintered body without any pores is obtained. The final product is ground to specified dimension and surface roughness.
