What is Silicon Nitride?
Silicon nitride was first prepared in 1857 and was little more than a chemical curiosity for nearly a century. However, things changed in the late 1940s, when the compound began to be used across multiple industries, ultimately becoming a key component in electronics, turbo machinery, bearings, and even orbital satellites.
SINTX’s founders discovered that silicon nitride is stronger than bone and PEEK, biologically kind (accepted by the human body) and produced artifact-free imaging. These promising findings led to the development of a proprietary composition of silicon nitride well-suited for medical device applications.
