Green Silicon Carbide

Green Silicon Carbide (SiC) is an extremely hard (Mohs 9.4 / 2600 Knoop) man made mineral that possesses high thermal conductivity and high strength at elevated temperatures (at 1000°C, SiC is 7.5 times stronger than Al2O3). SiC has a modulus of elasticity of 410 GPa, with no decrease in strength up to 1600°C, and it does not melt at normal pressures but instead dissociates at 2600°C.

Green Silicon Carbide is used for many applications. See below for product information relating to your application.
