Silicon Carbide is a porous refractory material used for protection against extreme temperature (Direct Flame Impingement) and abrasive atmospheres.
Silicon Carbide Sheaths can also be used for direct immersions into molten aluminium, due to the porous nature we recommend an inner dimulit sheath is fitted.
Suitable for use to 1650 DEG C.
Thermal shock resistance: Due to its high thermal conductivity and low co-efficient of thermal expansion, silicon carbide is very resistant to thermal shock and thermal cycling compared to other refractory materials.
