»» Material name: Silicon carbide ceramics

Performance: It has excellent normal temperature mechanical properties, high bending strength, excellent oxidation resistance, good corrosion resistance, high wear resistance and low friction coefficient. Its high temperature strength can be maintained up to 1600°C. It is a ceramic material The material with the best medium and high temperature strength and the best oxidation resistance among all non-oxide ceramics.
Advantages and disadvantages: Silicon carbide has excellent high temperature creep resistance, and has semiconductor properties, and can be processed to obtain a mirror effect. The disadvantage of silicon carbide ceramics is lower fracture toughness, that is, greater brittleness.
Application: Widely used in the lining of large blast furnaces; mechanical seal rings; tools for removing metal burrs, etc.
