Silicon Carbide is among the hardest of ceramics, and retains hardness and strength at elevated temperatures, which translates into among the best wear resistance. Additionally, SiC has a high thermal conductivity, especially in the CVD (chemical vapor deposition) grade, which aids in thermal shock resistance. It is also half the weight of steel.Based on this, SiC is often specified for seal faces and high performance pump parts.
There are many uses of Silicon Carbide. Its physical hardness makes it ideal to be used in abrasive machining processes like grinding, honing, sand blasting and water jet cutting. On top of that, it has also been used in the manufacture of ceramic brake discs for sports cars, bulletproof vests, seal ring material for pump shaft sealing where it frequently runs at high speed in contact with a similar silicon carbide seal.
The high surface hardness of the material lead to it being used in many engineering applications where a high degree of sliding, erosive and corrosive wear resistance is required. Typically this can be in components used in pumps or for example as valves in oilfield applications where conventional metal components would display excessive wear rates that would lead to rapid failures.
The unique electrical properties of the compound as a semiconductor make it ideal for manufacturing ultra fast and high voltage light emitting diodes, MOSFETs and thyristors for high power switching.
The material’s low thermal expansion coefficient, hardness, rigidity and thermal conductivity make it an ideal mirror material for astronomical telescopes. Silicon Carbide fibers, known as filaments are used to measure gas temperatures in an optical technique called thin filament pyrometry.
