Silicon Carbide Nanoparticles/Nanopowder
Category: Pre-market additives

A grey-white powder composed of silicon carbide particles with diameters averaging 40nm. This material is known for its stability, refractory properties, wear resistance, thermal conductivity, small thermal expansion co-efficient, and resistance to oxidation at high temperatures.

Typical Use:
  • Ceramics: high frequency ceramic, heat resistant ceramic parts, textile ceramics, and various other ceramic materials.
  • Abrasives: polishing abrasives, the surfaces of grinding tools, actual grinding materials, and related products.
  • Heat-resistant devices: high-temperature spray nozzles such as those used in aeronautics, heating elements, sealing valves, and other mechanical products intended to resist extreme temperatures.
  • Specialty coatings: abrasive surfaces, mirror coatings for UV resistance, and many others.
Apparent use of Nanotechnology: Silicon carbide nanoparticles
