Property:Silicon carbide metallurgical is an artificial high-strength abrasive obtained by melting quartz sand with silicon dioxide in a graphite electric furnace. Crystals, druses or crystalline powders from clear white, yellow, green or dark blue to black, depending on the purity, dispersity, allotropic and polytypic modifications.
SiC depending on the application
From 65 to 95%
The rest is occupied by other minerals.
- Used in abrasive processing, to create mechanical end seals. Used as a component of composite armor, used to protect weapons and military equipment, as well as a composite element of laminated armor ceramic / organoplastic anti-bullet vests, for the production of high-quality "ceramic" disc brakes. In ferrous metallurgy, in the production of opto-micro-nano electronics, in the production of tools for processing materials.Can be used as fiber in fibrous concrete. As a jeweler stone, Ferro silicon briquetteis used in jewelry (synthetic moissanite "or simply" moissanite ").
