Non-oxide Ceramics – Aluminum Nitride (AlN)

Ceramic Material with Very High Thermal Conductivity

Aluminum nitride (AlN) is a technical ceramic material that features an extremely interesting combination of very high thermal conductivity and excellent electrical insulation properties.

Worth knowing:

Properties of Aluminum Nitride (AlN)

  • High thermal conductivity
  • High electrical insulation capacity
  • Low thermal expansion
  • Good metalization capacity

This makes aluminum nitride predestined for use in power and microelectronics applications. For example, it is used as a circuit carrier (substrate) in semiconductors or as a heat-sink in LED lighting technology or high-power electronics.
