Silicon Carbide (SiC) supplied by Tecera is a ceramic based product available in two forms, namely Nitride bonded Silicon Carbide (NSiC) and Reaction bonded Silicon Carbide (SiSiC).
Nitride bonded silicon carbide offers superior dimensional control and uniformity of properties wherever silicon cardibe is required. The Nitride bonded refractory materials share common features including an outstanding hot mechanical strength and a low pores size that confers a low permeability to gas as well as a superior infiltration resistance to molten metal and slag, and a low wettability. The excellent thermal shock characteristics of NSiC improves performance and saves customers operating costs. With reduced spalling and erosion, expect SiC to last longer than steel and rubber.
SISiC has excellent wear, impact and chemical resistance. The strength of SiSiC is almost 50% greater than that of most NSiC. It can be formed into a variety of shapes, including cones and sleeve shapes, as well as more complex engineered pieces designed for equipment involved in the processing of raw materials. Reaction bonded Silicon Carbide is suitable for the high abrasive, coarse particles, classification, concentration, dehydration and other operations.
