Silicon Carbide

ABOUT: ELECTROCARB® Black Silicon Carbide (SiC) is an extremely hard (Mohs 9.1 / 2550 Knoop) man made mineral that possesses high thermal conductivity and high strength at elevated temperatures (at 1000°C, SiC is 7.5 times stronger than Al2O3). SiC has a modulus of elasticity of 410 GPa, with no decrease in strength up to 1600°C, and it does not melt at normal pressures but instead dissociates at 2600°C.

APPLICATIONS: ELECTROCARB® Black Silicon Carbide contains some free silicon (Si) and carbon (C) and is not as pure as green SiC. It is ideal for a wide variety of applications including vitrified and resinoid grinding wheels, friction, blasting, compounds, lapping, polishing, non-slip, wiresawing silicon & quartz, and many more.
