Want to keep this datasheet? Save it now in your required format


Silicon carbide, mainly consisting of SiC, it maintains strength up to 1400°C and it is ideal for use as a construction material. SiC has excellent thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion and is very resistant to acids and lyes. It masters corrosion, abrasion and erosion as skillfully as it stands up to frictional wear.

This material data has been provided by Innovacera.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
