Membrane burst pressure:

With the right thickness and size combination, Norcada’s Stress Tailored SiNx and Norcada SiC can be used as an X-ray or e-beam window and a barrier between ambient pressures and vacuum. The maximum pressure (burst pressure) a silicon nitride membrane can hold strongly depends on the thickness and size of the membrane.
