Saint-Gobain offers a choice of ceramic materials that can help reduce downtime in demanding nozzle applications with its Hexoloy® SiC and Norbide® materials.
Hexoloy® SiC is the most popular alternative in the world to tungsten carbide. It provides long life (50% over WC) due to excellent wear and corrosion resistance.
Norbide® Boron Carbide - one of the hardest materials known - also delivers excellent wear and abrasion resistance for longer service life. Nozzles can be provided as jacketed or non-jacketed.
