Compared with normal boron nitride ceramic, pyrolytic boron nitride (PBN) has raw materials with much higher purity level. PBN sheets, discs and other pyrolytic boron nitride products are synthesized on the mold by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process, with BCl3 and NH3 at high temperature and low pressure. the PBN products are extremely pure（99.99%）, as the purity of vapor is easier to be controlled. Most of PBN products made from CVD process have total impurity of less than 100 ppm. With such a high purity level, PBN plates are ideal products for semiconductor industries.
Similar with graphite, boron nitride has great strength at high temperature. High purity PBN products have even better mechanical properties. As the solid material is formed by the CVD process, the density of the products could almost reach the theoretical value. PBN products provided by Stanford Advanced Materials also have great thermal shock resistance. Plates of PBN could be heated to more than 2000 degree and dropped into the water without getting broken.

Please notice, as a CVD material, pyrolytic boron nitride sheets could not be very thick. The largest thickness available for our PBN sheet is 0.2". We also provide PBN crucibles, tubes, and heating elements!
