Methods for processing Silicon Nitride.

Methods for processing Silicon Nitride.


Hello folks,

I may as well start by saying that I'm a total newbie and out of my league here... so, here it goes:

Can anyone tell me methods by which silicon nitride can be fabricated? Is it a sintering method? Can complex geometries be created? Is the required tooling expensive? Does anyone have a resource they could point me to?

Also, if I wanted to use silicone nitride as a wear surface over a metal such as tool steel, what are my fastening/bonding options to attach the silicon nitride to the steel?

Thank you for your response. I ordered a used copy online.
