BLACK SILICON CARBIDE

High quality Black Silicon Carbide that is particularly suitable for refractory applications, due to its excellent thermal conductivity and high strength (much higher than Al₂O₃*).

Product code: OM-BSC

Description

Black Silicon Carbide consists of crystalline silicon carbide, which is produced from silica sand and petroleum coke in electric resistance furnaces at temperatures of > 2.300 °C. Silicon carbide is iron-free, blocky, and extremely hard.
