Saint-Gobain Ceramics - Hexoloy® Products - Hexoloy® SA Silicon Carbide

Hexoloy® SA SiC is produced by the pressureless sintering of submicron silicon carbide powder. The sintering process results in a self-bonded, fine grain (less than 10µm) SiC material, which is extremely hard, lightweight and low in porosity. The material can be formed into complex shapes with greater than 98% theoretical density. (read more)
