Title:
POLYCRYSTALLINE SILICON INGOT CASTING MOLD AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING SAME, AND SILICON NITRIDE POWDER FOR MOLD RELEASE MATERIAL FOR POLYCRYSTALLINE SILICON INGOT CASTING MOLD AND SLURRY CONTAINING SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/090541
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided are a polycrystalline silicon ingot casting mold, a method for producing polycrystalline silicon ingot casting molds, a silicon nitride powder for a mold release material for the polycrystalline silicon ingot casting molds, and a slurry containing the silicon nitride powder for the mold release material, with which high-quality silicon ingots can be obtained at high yields by minimizing adhesions with the surfaces of the silicon ingot molds, and fragments and damage that occur when solidified silicon ingots are released from the molds. The method for producing a polycrystalline silicon ingot casting mold having a release layer is characterized by being provided with: a slurry-forming step for forming a slurry by mixing a silicon nitride powder with water, said silicon nitride powder being obtained by blending a silicon nitride powder (A) having an average particle diameter along the short axis of 0.6 to 13 μm with a silicon nitride powder (B) having an average particle diameter along the short axis of 0.1 to 0.3 μm at a weight ratio of 5:5 to 9:1; a slurry coating step for coating the surface of the mold with the slurry; and a heating step for heating the mold at 800 to 1200°C in an atmosphere containing oxygen, after the slurry coating step.
