An Overview of SiC Material

Basically, silicon carbide ceramic is one of the most advanced materials. As the name suggests,

it is made from carbon and silicon. In nature, it’s found as a rare form of mineral moissanite. Since 1893, silicon carbide ceramic has been in production.¬†

It is possible to bind the grains of this material. The idea is to make something really hard. Since there is a rising demand for marine engineering, the automobile industry, space technology, and nuclear energy, the demand for this material has also been on the rise. Let’s find out more.

These ceramic offers a wide range of excellent features like chemical corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance, increase hardness, thermal expansion coefficient, reduced wear resistance, and high-temperature resistance.

This is the reason this material is commonly used in many industries, such as energy, information electronics, space technology, environmental protection, chemical industry, automobile industry.

Nowadays, these ceramics are used in the form of corrosion-resistant containers in a lot of industries, such as the petrochemical industry. This material is used in different types of devices, such as mechanical seal parts, bearings, and cutting tools. Apart from this, it is an ideal choice for different types of engine components, rocket nozzles, gas turbines, and many other things.
