Silicon Carbide Grains - Black

  •  
  • * This is a 25 kg Bag price Excluding GST and Excluding Freight
    * For Bulk inquiries contact our sales team on sales@pacificabrasives.com.au

    Black Silicon carbide is produced from quartz sand and petroleum coke of high purity under high temperature in an electric arc furnace. Abrasive tools made of this abrasive are fit to grind metals and non-metal materials of low tensile strength. Examples include grey cast iron, brass, aluminum, stone, leather and rubber etc. This can also be used for refractory purpose or in the electronics industry.

    Grains are supplied in 25kg bags only.

    Applications:

    • Grinding wheels
    • Coated tools Heating elements
    • Polishing Ceramic
    • Lapping Refractory
    • Abrasive and cutting tools
    • Structural material

    Uses Silicon_carbide

    Black Silicon Carbide is produced in an electric resistance furnace from quartz sand and petroleum coke or anthracite at high temperature. The hardness and sharp particle of this material make it suitable for manufacturing of grinding wheels, coated products, wire saws, superior refractory materials and deoxide as well as for lapping, polishing and blasting.
