Silicon carbide fibers are fibers with diameters ranging from 5 to 150 microns and are primarily composed of silicon carbide molecules. Depending on the manufacturing process, they may contain some excess silicon or carbon, or a small amount of oxygen. Compared with organic fibers and some ceramic fibers, silicon carbide fibers have high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature resistance [questionable-discussion] and low thermal expansion. These properties make silicon carbide fibers the hot section component of choice for next-generation gas turbines.

Almost all silicon carbide fibers produced are used as fiber reinforcements in ceramic composites. Most are used to produce metal matrix composites such as aluminum, titanium or molybdenum composites. They can also be used to make various ceramic matrix composites, such as SiC/SiC (a high-temperature composite used in aerospace).
