Oxide powders, silicon and silicides

Höganäs’ selection of oxide powders, silicon and silicides are developed for advanced ceramics applications as well as for thermal spray.

Yttrium oxide powders can be used for dental ceramics that are free from porcelain and metal. Yttrium oxide is used to stabilise Zirconia, which is a very hard ceramic base material. Yttrium oxide powders can also be used as an additive in special glass, as a catalyst carrier, as a sintering additive and for luminescent materials.

Silicon metal powder is used for reaction-bonded Silicon Nitride and for infiltration for SiC. Silicon nitride is used in the casting industry for foundry applications. Molybdenum disilicide is a refractory ceramic, which is primarily used in heating elements for temperatures up to 1,800 °C, in electric furnaces and in the production environment when producing glass, steel, electronics and ceramics. These oxide powders, silicon and silicides are all available from Höganäs’ wide product portfolio of advanced ceramics powders.

Metal powders contribute to sustainable development

Metal powder technology provides endless opportunities; not only does it enable our customers to reduce their material and energy consumption, but it also helps them use new and better techniques that make final products more efficient and less expensive.

We believe that the inherent power of metal powders can be utilised to a much larger extent than it is today. We are also convinced that metal powders can contribute to sustainable development. With metal powder solutions, we can contribute to solving many of society’s pressing challenges, such as resource scarcity and the need for renewable energy.

"We inspire the industry to make more with less because we want to create a sustainable world for future generations."
