What are Machinable Ceramics?

For most people, ceramics are hard, brittle materials, mostly associated with tiles, bricks, and pottery. These functional and mostly clay-based materials are the most common ceramics in daily use.  The more specialist technical ceramics used in extreme environments and demanding applications are less frequently encountered, but have properties which make them unique.  A small subsection of […]

Seven Advantages of Boron Nitride Nozzles

Hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN) is a unique material that has a wide range of industrial applications. One common uses of this material is high-temperature nozzles in molten metal applications. Non-clogging – Most molten metals do not wet hBN, resulting in nozzles that don’t clog and cause costly aborted runs. Ultra-high temperature capability – Some Boron Nitride […]
