ⅠWhat is Silicon Carbide?

Silicon carbide (SiC) is produced by high-temperature smelting of electric furnaces with quartz sand, petroleum coke (or coal char) and wood chips (which require the addition of salt when producing green silicon carbide) etc. as raw material. Silicon carbide, also called carbon silica, is rare mineral in nature. In the non-oxide high-tech refractory raw materials such as C, N and B, silicon carbide for sale is the most widely used and economical and it can be called gold steel sand or refractory sand. At present, industrial production of silicon carbide is divided into black silicon carbide and green silicon carbide both hexagonal crystals, specific gravity of 3.20~3.25, micro  hardness of 2840~3320kg/mm2. Anyang Huatuo Metallurgy, as professional silicon carbide supplier, is specialized in exporting various models of silicon carbide. We have built cooperation with over 20 countries and regions, including U.S.A. Chile, Argentina, Turkey, Mexico, Korea, Japan, etc.


ⅡThe Main Four Silicon Carbide Application Areas

Silicon carbide is mainly used in functional ceramics, advanced refractory materials abrasives and metallurgical raw materials. Anyang Huatuo Metallurgy can supply a large amount of silicon carbide.

  • As an abrasive, it can be used as a grinding tool, such as grinding wheel, oil stone, grinding head, sand tile etc.
  • As a metallurgical deoxidizer and a high temperature resistant material.
  • High-purity single crystals, which can be used in the manufacture of semi-conductors and in the manufacture of silicon carbide fibers.

Main applications: for 3-12 inch single crystal silicon, poly-silicon, potassium arsenide, quartz crystal and other wire cutting as well as solar photo-voltaic industry, semi-conductor industry, piezoelectric crystal industry engineering processing materials. Silicon carbide has wide applications and more new markets are waiting to be developed. The new field represented by wire cutting is leading the upgrading of the silicon carbide industry. With the improvement of the international economic situation, the silicon carbide industry will usher new developments and opportunities.

Ⅲ Applications of New Fields of Silicon Carbide

In the future, silicon carbide will mainly applied in semi-conductors, lightning rods, circuit components, high temperature applications , ultraviolet light detectors, structural materials, astronomy, disc brakes, clutches, diesel particulate filters, cutting tools, nuclear fuel and other fields.
