ADVANTAGES OF Silicon carbide

Silicon carbide is mostly used in applications that require high thermal conductivity. Its extreme hardness, resulting extraordinary resistance to wear, and excellent chemical resistance are the distinguishing qualities of this material. It has become an irreplaceable cornerstone of chemical process engineering, milling processes and dispersion technology.

 

SSiC-CS10

Sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) is made out of very fine SiC-powder and is characterised by his very high stiffness even at high temperature.

  • extreme good thermal conductivity (7 x better than stainless steel)
  • high thermal shock resistance
  • highest wear resistance
  • extremely hard
  • extreme chemical resistance
  • highest Young’s modulus
  • very good sliding properties
  • small electric resistance
  • low density
  • colour: black

SSiC-CS10G

This material (SSiC with graphite) has been developed on the basis of the proven sintered silicon carbide CS10 and is employed where increased emergency sliding properties are required.

  • increased emergency sliding properties through graphite particles in the structure
  • extreme good thermal conductivity (6 x better than stainless steel)
  • high thermal shock resistance
  • highest wear resistance
  • extremely hard
  • extreme chemical resistance
  • highest Young’s modulus
  • small electric resistance
  • low density
  • colour: black

SiSiC-CS11

SiSiC stands for highest thermal conductivity amongst silicon carbides. Metallic silicium infiltrate the SiC structure and allows sintering without shrinking. Therefore it is advised for very big components.

  • extreme good thermal conductivity (10 x better than stainless steel)
  • highest wear resistance
  • very good sliding properties
  • small electric resistance
  • low density
  • colour: black

RSiC-CS07

Recrystallized SiC (RSiC) is a pure silicon carbide material with an open porosity up to 15%. Due to the open porosity RSiC has lower mechanical strength than dense sintered silicon carbides.

  • extreme good thermal shock resistance
  • open porosity
  • very low density
  • colour: black crystallising
