Beta Silicon Carbide is a synthetic SiC with a cubic structure, like diamond, which gives it superior physical and chemical properties. Its Mohs hardness is second only to diamond’s 10 on Mohs scale. In addition to high hardness, β-SiC has good chemical stability, high thermal conductivity, low thermal coefficient of thermal expansion, wide band gap, high electro drift velocity, high electronic mobility, and special temperature resistant characteristics. Therefore, it has superior abrasion resistance, high temperature resistance, thermal shock resistance, radiation resistance, and semi-conductive properties.
GNPGraystar‘s β-SiC is used in applications such as electronics, information technology, precision machining, military and aerospace, high-grade refractories, special ceramic materials, high-grade grinding materials, and reinforcing materials.
