Stanford Advanced Materials is proud to announce the release of its new Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN), an anisotropic high-temperature ceramic. PBN exhibits a unique combination of high electrical resistance and good thermal conductivity. PBN is still a relatively new ceramic material, which is not currently offered by many companies. It’s extremely high purity paves new opportunities for the semiconductor industries and manufactures of crystal growth. High purity materials mean better quality, innovative products.

Traditionally ceramic products are produced by sintering ceramic powders, including boron nitride, alumina, zirconia, and silicon carbide. PBN products are different as they are made by the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) process. This means, the structural material of the product is “synthesized” on a mold, by gas. The material is constructed molecule by molecule, not particle by particle. Thus, the PBN products have higher density and almost zero porosity. This innovative material is made from gas not powder- as the purity of gas is easier to control than powder, PBN products are extremely pure - 99.99%, and can be used by crystal manufactures and the semiconductor industry. In addition PBN products have a thin wall, as they do not use the traditional process, which is time consuming and results in thicker products.

Ken Ge from Stanford Advanced Materials said, “There is an increasing demand for high purity and low porosity crucibles, or containers for quality crystal growth. PBN now offers this. We are extremely thrilled about this new product as we are always striving to bring our customers the latest products, and currently very few companies are offering this product. We truly believe that PBN is going to have a bright future and we can expect to see crystals with better quality soon as PBN is virtually pure and has zero porosity compared to traditional ceramics. This will give a longer operational life than coated products.”
