It is a synthetic material with an exceptional hardness, highly wear resistance and chemically inert to alkalis and acids.
Thanks to purity over 99% SiC, extraordinary hardness, particle shape and a carefully elaborated particle size distribution, green and black silicon carbide is an exceptional material for any abrasive application. (Abrasives)
Due to its great resistance to thermal stress, low dilatation coeffcient and high resistance to abrasion and chemical attack, silicon carbide is an unavoidable component in refractories and ceramic industry. (Refractories)
Furthermore, the silicon carbide fits perfectly to new technologies (like electronic or aeronautic industries, or high temperature applications) due to its high purity and special properties. (Special application).
