Silicon Nitride HVAC igniter

Silicon nitride offers a series of benefits that make it ideal for use as an igniter component. Silicon nitride provides strength over an extensive temperature range and is extremely hard and fracture resistant-the chief aspect of its durability. Silicon nitride is also strongly resistant to thermal shock and chemicals.
