How is Silicon Carbide Made?

Silicon carbide (SiC) is a hard, stiff ceramic that is highly heat-resistant. SiC is often found in use as wear-resistant parts due to its extreme hardness; used in metallurgical and refractories industries for its resistance against high temperatures; or used as electronic component due to its semi-conducting properties. Elkem offers both reaction-bonded and sintered SiC… Continue reading How is Silicon Carbide Made?
