Silicon Carbide (SiC) Ceramics
Silicon carbide (SiC), also known as silicon carbide, is a ceramic-like compound formed by bonding silicon and carbon. Since the end of the 19th century, silicon carbide has become an important material for sandpaper, grinding wheels, and cutting tools. More recently, it has found applications in refractory linings and heating elements for industrial furnaces, wear parts for pumps and rocket engines, and semiconductor substrates for light-emitting diodes.
Silicon Carbide Properties
-High hardness, Mohs hardness level 9
-High thermal conductivity
-High temperature strength
-Low thermal expansion
-Resistant to chemical reactions
-Conductivity between metal and insulating material
Silicon Carbide SiC Application
Based on the above properties, silicon carbide ceramic products are used as
– Potential replacement for traditional semiconductors such as silicon in high-temperature applications.
-Grinding wheel and sandpaper, cloth products
-Refractory materials such as high temperature bricks
– Abrasives and cutting tools
-Structural materials
-Car parts
-Electronic circuit components
-Filament pyrometers
-Catalyst support
