Silicon Carbide Insert

Edgetech Industries, Advanced Ceramics Division supplies high-quality and competitive price advanced Silicon Carbide (SiC) Insert .


Silicon Carbide Insert, SiC Insert


Silicon carbide is an ideal material for pump inserts. Silicon carbide insert has excellent corrosion resistance, great wear resistance, great mechanical strength under high temperature. It also has great mechanical properties. Carbon impregnated silicon carbide materials effectively improve the self-lubrication.

Edgetech Industries, advanced ceramics division supplies silicon carbide inserts processed by sintering and reaction bonding to fulfill various requirements of our customers. We can provide both flat silicon carbide inserts and custom-manufactured SiC inserts with complex shapes.
