Products Refractory Industry Silicon Carbide

Product Information - Silicon Carbide


Silicon Carbide = SiC is a synthetic compound of carbon and silica.
It has a high refractoriness and extreme hardness between carborundum and diamond.
Therefore refractories and abrasives are the main application of SiC.
In the steel and foundry industry it is used as silicon and carbon alloy.
Origin (local): China
Production process: Acheson process:
Synthesis of SiC from silica sand and coke in a furnace with a carbon core which cuducts electricity at a temperature of 2,300 degree Celsius.
Crushing, milling, screening
Packing: Bulk
Big bags


Chemical analysis: SiC 85 - 98 %
