Silicon Carbide (SiC) – CeramaSil-C™



Silicon Carbide (SiC) has properties remarkably similar to those of diamond – it is one of the lightest, hardest, and strongest advanced ceramic materials and has exceptional thermal conductivity, resistance to acids, and low thermal expansion. Silicon Carbide is an excellent material to use when physical wear is an important consideration because it exhibits good erosion and abrasive resistance, making it useful in a variety of applications such as spray nozzles, shot blast nozzles, and cyclone components.
