Silicon Carbide (SiC) is a synthetic mineral produced in electrical resistance furnaces by the Acheson Process. The crystals vary in colour from very pale green to black, depending on the quantity of impurities.
SiC is extremely hard and sharp, with excellent chemical properties and inert to all alkalis and acids. Its hardness is only surpassed by diamond and boron carbide.
ESD-SIC produces high-quality metallurgical grade SiC for iron and steel applications. Our brands E-SIC and TOP-SIC are examples of our success in the market.
