  • SiC is an extremely hard (Mohs 9.4 / 2600 Knoop) mineral that possesses high thermal conductivity and high strength at elevated temperatures
  • Green SIC is made from Silica sand and coke, and is extremely pure. Hexagonally shaped, it breaks into very sharp particles. Green SiC is harder than black, coming in at a 9.4 Mohs and 2600 on the Knoop scale.
  • SiC is produced in electrical internal resistance furnaces from very high purity silica sand and petroleum coke.
  • Extremely hard (Mohs hardness 9.25)
  • High thermal conductivity
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Thermal Shock and abrasion resistant.
Applications :
