    silicon carbide wafer, silicon carbide boule, fused silicon carbide, alpha phase, beta phase, silicon carbide platelet, silicon carbide fiber, silicon carbide grit

  • Silicon Carbide Formula:

  • Silicon Carbide Description:
    1) Produced in electric resistance furnaces with a mixture of coke, sand, sawdust, and a small amount of salt. It is blocky and sharp edged. Also from Sic crystals.

    2) It is extremely hard, has a high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion. Not attacked by most acids and alkaline solutions. It dissociates in molten iron and steel. It oxidizes slowly in air above 800 deg.C.

  • Silicon Carbide Typical Chemical Properties Available:
    Various purities available from a low purity metallurgical grade (90.0%), to 99.0% (black), 99.2% (black), 99.5% (dark green), 99.7% (light green), and up to 99.9995% for wafers and boule.

  • Silicon Carbide Typical Physical Properties Available:
  • Available as irregular shaped powder, crystals, platelets, wafer and boule. Numerous size distributions available from very coarse grits (1/2" pieces) all the way down to 20-100 nanometer particles
