Where is Aluminum Nitride Used?

Aluminium buyers in the US physical metal market have held off on new orders amid fears of a recession triggered by rising inflation and supply chain crises.  

Spot aluminium trading on the market has been suspended in recent weeks, according to industry sources, as uncertainty has increased following the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.  Even before the war, the aluminium market was suffering from long waiting times and weak demand.  

For aluminium buyers, recent poor US economic data have been a big factor in delaying purchases.  Data released last month showed that the ISM manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1 in March, below expectations of 59 and down from 58.6 in February, unexpectedly hitting the lowest reading since September 2020.  This was mainly due to a slowdown in new orders and Aluminum Nitride,AlN are expected to increase in the future.

What is Aluminum Nitride

Aluminum nitride, covalent bond compound, chemical formula is AIN, is an atomic crystal, belongs to diamond-like nitride, hexagonal system, wurtzite crystal structure, non-toxic, white or off-white.


AlN is stable up to 2200°C. The strength at room temperature is high, and the strength decreases slowly with the increase of temperature. Good thermal conductivity, small thermal expansion coefficient, is a good thermal shock material. It has strong corrosion resistance to molten metal, and is an ideal crucible material for casting pure iron, aluminum or aluminum alloy. Aluminum nitride is also an electrical insulator with good dielectric properties and is also promising as an electrical component. The aluminum nitride coating on the gallium arsenide surface protects it from ion implantation during annealing. Aluminum nitride is also a catalyst for the conversion of hexagonal boron nitride to cubic boron nitride.


Where is Aluminium nitride used?

Due to the properties of the piezoelectric effect of aluminum nitride, epitaxial stretching of aluminum nitride crystals is also used for surface acoustic wave detectors. The detectors are placed on silicon wafers. There are very few places where these thin films can be produced reliably.


Aluminum nitride ceramics have the characteristics of high room temperature and high temperature strength, small expansion coefficient and good thermal conductivity, and can be used as heat exchanger materials for high temperature structural parts.


Using aluminum nitride ceramics to resist the corrosion properties of iron, aluminum and other metals and alloys, it can be used as crucible and casting mold materials for smelting Al, Cu, Ag, Pb and other metals.


AlN is mainly used in the microelectronics industry as an electrically insulating but thermally conductive barrier in silicon-based electronic devices. Given its deep ultraviolet bandgap, there is interest in high-quality AlN structures that can be used as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or lasers to generate ultraviolet light.

The war in Russia and Ukraine is roiling global financial markets. Russia and Ukraine are important commodity suppliers in the world, so their conflict is bound to make a full impact on the global commodity supply. In view of this, the price of the Aluminum Nitride,AlN may continue to rise in the future.
