Silicon Carbide Insert Description

Silicon carbide is an ideal material for pump inserts. Silicon carbide inserts have excellent corrosion resistance, great mechanical strength under high temperature and great wear resistance. We can supply multiple sizes of silicon carbide inserts as well as other SiC parts.

Silicon carbide inserts have great mechanical properties. Carbon impregnated silicon carbide materials effectively improve the self-lubrication. Advanced Ceramic Materials supplies silicon carbide inserts processed by sintering and reaction bonding to fulfill various requirements of our customers. We can deliver both flat silicon carbide inserts and custom manufactured silicon carbide inserts with complex shapes.
