Silicon(IV) nitride is used in automobile industry as a material for engine parts such as diesel engines and glowplugs. It is used for rocker arm pads for lower wear in spark-ignition engines. Ceramics made from Silicon(IV) nitride show good shock resistance. Similarly, bearings made from this find application in the main engines of NASAs space shuttle. It acts as an insulator and is used in the manufacturing of integrated circuits.
