Silicon Carbide

Silicon Carbide

Silicon carbide is basically a ceramic material. Silicon carbide has an unpackable hardness factor, which makes silicon carbide a prolific popular abrasive. Silicon carbide is only surpassed by diamonds. Somehow silicon carbide can also be surpassed by cubic boron nitride and boron carbide. As silicon carbides have relatively low cost and superior hardness, thus silicon carbide is also a cost-efficient abrasive.

It can also be employed as a solid abrasive material in a very vast range. Silicon carbide tools are consistently used in grinding steel and cast iron. Silicon carbide can also be used to cut carbide, aluminum, and nonferrous materials, somehow silicon carbide is also employed to cut plastic and rubbers.

Silicon carbide because of its hard action is commonly used to create a smooth and shiny surface. Abrasive blasting machine is a new step towards innovation in the field of sand blasting.

It is well suited for almost all kinds of polishing surfaces. Silicon carbide is also preferred for softer materials as per its workability factor.

Silicon carbide is also employed with various types of lapping and also silicon carbide is used to create smooth, flat, and also with unpolished surfaces. Silicon carbide is also a prolific semiconductor that contains silicon and carbon in it.
