Volcera is a silicon nitride and is characterised by a range of properties that make it a very interesting choice for industrial applications. Thanks to its high strength and low thermal expansion coefficient, the Volcera material is ideally suited to alternating thermal stresses.

Even at temperatures of around 1,000 °C, components made from Volcera can still transmit very high forces and is therefore extremely well suited to soldering and welding applications.
