Silicon nitride has become a major structural ceramic material in the past decade. One form of this material, referred to as reaction-bonded silicon nitride, is of particular interest because it permits the production of ceramic components requiring little or not machining. The review discusses the application of powder metallurgical techniques to the fabrication of reaction- bonded silicon nitride, the nitridation process, and resultant properties.
