Sialon ST from McDanel Advanced Ceramic Technologies LLC is a ceramic alloy which is iso-structural with beta silicon nitride and contains aluminum and oxygen in solid solution. Consequently, it exhibits a very desirable combination of the properties of both silicon nitride (high strength, hardness, fracture toughness, and thermal shock resistance) and alumina (refractoriness, corrosion resistance, and oxidation resistance).

Traditional refractory products are used in high temperature applications where one or two of the following requirements are satisfied: corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, electrical insulation. McDanel Sialon combines high levels of each of these properties in a single material.

McDanel Sialon products include various tubes, shrouds, pins, rings, plates, and various components. We also have significant capabilities for producing custom engineered Sialon products.
