Black Silicon Carbide

Black silicon carbide is a high-grade electro-fused black silicon carbide manufactured by the fusion of petroleum coke and silica sand.

One of the toughest and most aggressive products in the synthetic mineral ranges for use in a myriad of applications from general blasting and surface finishing of non-aero components, anti slip flooring, vibratory finishing medias, safe manufacture, coated & bonded abrasives and polishing compounds.

Noted for its high thermal stability and wear properties this material is used extensively in refractories, bonded and coated abrasives and precision surface finishing as well as extensively in the safety flooring sector.

Black Silicon Carbide is unique because of its excellent abrasive properties. Grains can be utilised in a variety of applications e.g. sintered into a range of technical ceramics; the grains are used extensively for photovoltaic applications, chemical filters, refractories and bonded or coated abrasives.
