Morgan Advanced Materials Bolsters Halsic-N Production Capability

The material, known as Halsic-N, is a ­nitride-bonded silicon carbide, with a microstructure which offers increased mechanical strength and greater durability than typical materials used for kiln furniture. It is an advancement of Morgan’s popular Halsic-R range, designed to have a longer lifespan, with enhanced refractory properties including resistance to oxidation, and thermal shock. All components are available in a range of standard and bespoke whitewash coatings, allowing for porcelain articles to be easily removed from the kiln furniture. Dr Michael Rozumek, R&D Director at Morgan Advanced Materials, explained: “Throughout Europe, we are seeing increasing demand for luxury ceramic products. Halsic-N is our response to this demand. A material with a flexural strength of 160 MPa, improved oxidation resistance and resistance to creep deformation, it delivers all of the key performance attributes demanded by kiln users. Morgan also has the capability to form shapes to the exact dimensions required by customers, delivering a material that can be relied upon for repeated use during rapid heating and cooling.”
