From powder to power
Boron Carbide is the third hardest material known, surpassed only by diamond and cubic boron nitride. Not only does it possess extraordinary hardness, but it's also one of the most challenging materials to produce globally. With a density of 2.52 gr/cm³, boron carbide is the lightest, thus the easiest to carry, ballistic armor plate. Its hard surface, fortified by robust chemical bonds, reduces wear in harsh environments. Beyond its role as an armor material, boron carbide is utilized in nozzle production due to its high wear resistance and in the nuclear industry for its exceptional neutron absorption.
At Nurol Teknoloji, we leverage boron carbide, a derivative of the boron mine - with 70% of the world's reserves in our country, to produce the lightest, highest quality ballistic ceramics. We employ Reaction Bonding method to manufacture boron carbide ballistic armor plates. Furthermore, we have developed boron carbide composite ceramics through the direct sintering method, making us the highest-capacity producer worldwide with our experienced technical team and professional equipment.
Aluminum Oxide, or Alumina, is a versatile ceramic material known for its exceptional hardness and strength. It exhibits high thermal conductivity, electrical insulation, and excellent resistance to wear and corrosion, making it suitable for numerous demanding applications. Alumina, with a theoretical density of 3.95 gr/cm³, is renowned for maintaining its high strength and reliability even under extreme conditions such as high temperatures and corrosive environments.
In the realm of ballistic protection, Alumina ceramic armors present an ideal solution for clients seeking cost-effective yet highly effective defense against a range of threats. Alumina's unique properties, including its wear resistance and ability to withstand high temperatures, make it suitable not just for armor applications but also for components demanding high temperature and corrosion resistance. At Nurol Teknoloji, we utilize cutting-edge manufacturing processes to produce Alumina ceramics in various sizes, geometries, and thicknesses, providing our customers with protection solutions tailored to their unique requirements.
Silicon Carbide, the ceramic material with the highest hardness after boron carbide, exhibits excellent wear and corrosion resistance, even at high temperatures. It also has superior thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance, and minimal thermal expansion. With a theoretical density of 3.2 gr/cm³, silicon carbide ceramic armors offer protection against high threats with low weight, making it an ideal choice for personnel, vehicle, and structural protection systems.
In addition to its use as a ballistic ceramic plate, silicon carbide serves as a bearing, sealing element, and component requiring high-temperature wear resistance. Moreover, SiC layers produced through the CVD method are employed as a mirror, particularly in semiconductor production and space technologies. At Nurol Teknoloji, our furnaces operating in an inert gas atmosphere at 2250°C empower us to manufacture SiC technical ceramics in various sizes, geometries, and thicknesses.
