Silicon carbide

Abrasive and component for refractory materials

SiC is used in various refractory applications, in the abrasive industry and as an anti-slip or abrasion-protection aggregate in industrial floors. It stands out due to its particular hardness, its low weight and its high melting point.

Applications

  • Refractory applications
  • Abrasives
  • Industrial floors
  • Photovoltaics
  • Anti-slip coatings
  • Abrasion-protection coatings
