The brazing of hot pressed silicon nitride (HPSN) with ferritic stainless steel using high temperature brazing material has been studied. The effect of prior brazing metallization of stainless steel and activation of faying surface of HPSN by titanium sputtering on characteristics of the joint have been analysed. The characteristics of the HPSN-steel brazed interface have been studied by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) under SEM to understand the mechanism of joining through chemical interaction in different procedures used for the brazing. The bend strength of the brazed joints produced by different procedures of brazing process has been studied and compared. It is observed that the use of Ti activated HPSN and metallized stainless steel is beneficial for improvement of joint strength.
