Carbon Composite SiC Product Applications

Featured Product from MINTEQ® International Inc, Pyrogenics Group

High Friction Silicon Carbide For Carbon Composites
Silicon carbide (SiC) is composed of tetrahedra of carbon and silicon atoms with strong bonds in the crystal lattice. This produces a very hard and strong material. Silicon carbide is not attacked by any acids or alkalis or molten salts up to 800°C. In air, SiC forms a protective silicon oxide coating at 1200°C and is able to be used up to 1600°C.

The high thermal conductivity coupled with low thermal expansion and high strength gives this material exceptional thermal shock resistance along with very high friction properties.
