• What is silicon Carbide?

    Silicon carbide is an inorganic material with chemical formula SiC. 
    At the end of late 19th century, when silicon is tried to be added into carbon as a catalyst to synthesize diamond, silicon carbide was accidentally discovered. The hardness of silicon carbide is very high with hardness 9.5, on the Mohs scale, which is second only to diamond with hardness 10, on the Mohs scale. Silicon Carbide (SiC) is a typical covalently bonded compound. 78% of the total energy of Si-C bond is covalently bound and 22% is ionic. Silicon Carbide (SiC) is almost non-existent in nature, only occasionally found in meteorites.
  • What is silicon carbide material performance?

    Mechanical properties: high hardness, high strength, high elastic modulus, low friction coefficient.
    Chemical characteristics: strong wear resistance, corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, strong anti-oxidation.
    Thermal features: low coefficient of thermal expansion, high thermal conductivity, high temperature resistance.
  • What are the applications of silicon carbide?

    Main applications: High-performance ceramic, semiconductor material, refractory material, wear-resistant material, corrosion resistant material, abrasives and grinding tool, metallurgical additives.
     
  • What's the classification of silicon carbide?

    1.According to the classification of densification process: 
    Reaction bonded silicon carbide, sintered silicon carbide and recrystallized silicon carbide, hot pressed sintered silicon carbide, hot isostatic pressed silicon carbide and chemical vapor deposition silicon carbide material, etc.
     
    2.According to the classification of phase composition: 
    Solid phase sintering silicon carbide, liquid phase sintering silicon carbide, SiC Composite, SiC nanoparticle composite, silicon carbide-graphite particles, carbon nanotubes, whisker composite ceramics and SiC-carbon fiber ceramic matrix compound material, etc.
  • Why is reaction bonded silicon carbide not suitable for strong acid and alkali working conditions?

    Since reaction bonded silicon carbide contains free silicon(Si), the free silicon can be chemically corroded in the medium of strong acid and alkali, resulting in the reduced  service life of products. So it's not recommended.  
  • What are the application fields of silicon carbide product of Joint Power?

    The silicon carbide products we manufacture are mainly used in the mechanical seal industry.
