Sintered Silicon Carbide (SSIC)

Wear Protection Products

silicon-carbide-sinteredCalyco are mining and related industry Silicon Carbide Suppliers of Sintered Silicon Carbide SiC that displays an extremely high corrosion resistance in acidic and basic media, which is also maintained up to very high temperatures.

Sintered Silicon Carbide SiC is produced using very fine powder containing sintering additives. It is processed using forming methods typical of other ceramics and sintered at 2000 to 2200 Celsius in an inert gas atmosphere. Calyco SSIC is distinguished by high strength that stays nearly constant up to very high temperatures ( approximately 1600 Celsius ) maintaining that strength over longer periods.

These (SSIC) silicon carbide properties are outstanding among high temperature ceramics and are complimented by high thermal shock resistance, high thermal conductivity, high resistance to wear and hardness close to diamond.

Calyco Mining Equipment Supplies Sintered Silicon Carbide SiC used for slip ring seals in chemical pumps, bearing bushes, high temperature burner nozzles and kiln furniture for high temperature applications at mining and other industrial facilities throughout Australia.
