Silicon Carbide

silicon carbide
Silicon carbide (SiC), also known as carborundum, is a semiconductor containing silicon and carbon. It occurs in nature as the extremely rare mineral moissanite. Synthetic SiC powder has been mass-produced since 1893 for use as an abrasive.
Chemical formula: CSi
Solubility: Insoluble in water, soluble in molten …
Melting point: 2,830 °C (5,130 °F; 3,100 K) .
Grains of silicon carbide can be bonded together by sintering to form very hard ceramics that are widely used in applications requiring high endurance, such as car brakes, car clutches and ceramic plates in bulletproof vests. Electronic applications of silicon carbide such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and detectors in early radios were first demonstrated around 1907. SiC is used in semiconductor electronics devices that operate at high temperatures or high voltages, or both. Large single crystals of silicon carbide can be grown by the Lely method and they can be cut into gems known as synthetic moissanite.

Silicon Carbide, a mineral of extreme hardness and sharpness, is the ideal abrasive for grinding or sanding various materials. Same is also know for its thermal properties make it an excellent medium for use in the manufacture of refractory products and crucibles.
