Silicon carbide (SiC)

Due to its hardness and the high melting point silicon carbide is particularly suitable as abrasive. In addition, it also shows a good thermal conductivity.
It is manufactured by reduction of silicon oxide (quartz) with coal (coke) at approx. 2000°C.
Silicon carbide has a hard, sharp-edged structure and is particularly suitable for working hard and ductile materials but it can also be used for stone, varnish and plastic.
