How do we manufacture silicon carbide?
Bricks built with SiC are silicon carbide bricks as the primary raw material. Making it typically involves mixing SiC particles, SiC powder, and binding agents, which are subsequently blown, molded, dried, and burned. The three types: are corundum, mullite, and oxide-bonded silicon carbide.
Moreover, they contain 72% to 99% SiC concentration produced using SiC as the primary raw material. Also, their bricks are helpful to line aluminum cells since they have excellent wear resistance and solid thermal strength.
Additionally, we promise to monitor the process requirements during production strictly. As a result, you get excellent quality.
