Silicon carbide is a long lasting, rugged, dependable performer in many challenging environments. Our products including beams, batts, plates and rollers, are made to tight dimensional tolerances and have an excellent load-bearing ability at higher temperatures. Silicon carbide retains most of its mechanical strength at elevated temperatures and exhibits very low levels of creep, making it the first choice for load-bearing applications in the range 1300 to 1650°C (2400 to 3000°F).
Silicon carbide components provide outstanding thermal shock resistance but unlike traditional ceramics, they also combine low density with high mechanical strength. Additionally, these products offer extreme hardness/abrasion resistance and outstanding chemical stability in aggressive environments.
