Silicon Carbide Insert Description

Silicon carbide is an ideal material for pump inserts. It has excellent corrosion resistance, great mechanical strength under high temperature and great wear resistance. Silicon carbide ceramic has superior favor and efficiency compared to other vaporization surfaces.

SiC inserts have great mechanical properties. Carbon-impregnated silicon carbide materials effectively improve 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 SiC inserts and custom-manufactured SiC inserts with complex shapes.
