The advantages and disadvantages of Silicon Carbide

Silicon carbide products are an advanced material widely used in high temperature, high pressure and high frequency environments.

Silicon Carbide Ceramic
Its advantages and disadvantages are as follows:
1.Excellent high-temperature performance: The melting point of silicon carbide products is as high as 2700°C, which can maintain its structural stability and strength in high-temperature environments, so it is widely used in high-temperature molten metals, high-temperature heating furnaces, high-temperature petrochemical and other fields.
2.Strong corrosion resistance: Silicon carbide has excellent corrosion resistance and can work stably for a long time in acid, alkali and oxidative environments.
3.High hardness and high strength: Silicon carbide has higher hardness and strength than traditional ceramic materials, so it has good wear resistance and impact resistance.
4.Excellent thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity: Silicon carbide has high thermal conductivity and excellent electrical conductivity, so it is widely used in the manufacture of high-power electronic components and radiators.
1.Expensive: Silicon carbide products are expensive to manufacture because of their high manufacturing costs.
2.Difficulty in manufacturing: The manufacture of silicon carbide products is difficult and requires complex production processes such as high temperature and high pressure.
3.Fragile: Silicon carbide products are fragile and not suitable for some environments with large particles and easy wear.
4.Poor machinability: The machinability of silicon carbide products is poor, and the processing is difficult, so it is difficult to manufacture silicon carbide products with complex shapes.
