Ultra light and extremely hard
Sintered silicon carbide (SSiC):
Pressureless sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) is a particularly light and at the same time hard high-performance ceramic. SSiC is characterized by high strength, which remains almost constant even at extreme temperatures. Schunk offers SSiC under the names CarSIK-SD.
What distinguishes CarSIK-SD?
Schunk's CarSIK-SD has a very high resistance to chemical corrosion. Exceptionally high hardness combined with low density is optimal for lightweight solutions.
Where is CarSIK-SD used?
Thanks to its excellent properties, our SSiC ceramic is used in sliding and sealing rings. In personal protection and for the armoring lining of land and air vehicles, CarSIK-SD is also suitable.
Special properties of CarSIK-SD (SSiC):
- Hardness: 28 GPa
- Density: 3,1 g/cm³
- Compressive strength: 3800 MPa
- Thermal conductivity: 110 W/mK
- Flexural strength: 390 MPa
- Modulus of elasticity: 400 GPa
- High corrosion and wear resistance
