ATTRIBUTES OF NITRIDE COMPOUNDS OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE PROCESSES


Materion manufactures its versatile range of custom nitrides to retain strength at high temperatures and to produce an extremely hard ceramic material. They also exhibit non-toxic properties. These attributes make them desirable in a variety of markets to enhance performance processes and improve the end product.

NITRIDES CRITICAL FOR MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS

While new uses are being developed every day, nitride compounds are employed by diverse industries such as optical coatings, decorative & jewelry coatings, military and aerospace, microelectronics conductive barriers, medical implants and protective coatings on bicycle and motorcycles. They are especially useful for the following applications:

  • Electrical components
  • Hard coatings for cutting materials
  • Thin film deposition
  • Insulation for wide bandgap semiconductors
  • InGaN – to produce blue light LEDs
  • Coatings to improve substrate surface properties in titanium alloys, steel, carbide and aluminum components
