GREEN SILICON CARBIDE

Green Silicon Carbide has a high purity level and finds its application in high-end lapping abrasives, electronics / semi-conductors, and grinding wheels.

Product code: OM-GSC

Description

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