Silicon Carbide Shapes and Powders

Consistent with its focus on engineered, carbonaceous, materials, Superior Graphite offers a range of high purity Silicon Carbide and Boron Carbide powders for sintered or hot pressed parts, coatings, and additives. Known for their extreme hardness, low specific gravity, and elevated temperature performance, these materials are used for ballistic armor, abrasives, composites, brake linings, heating elements, nozzles and igniters.  Additionally, Superior Graphite is active in emerging technologies and processes related to Non-Oxide Ceramic Powders, such as:

Additive Manufacturing

Advanced Sintering Processes (Field Assisted, Direct Current, Spark Plasma, for example)

Ceramic Matrix Composites

Pre-Ceramic Polymer Additives

Micro-Abrasives for lapping and polishing

Sinter-Pur Ceramic Powders
