Hexoloy® SA Silicon Carbide

Hexoloy® SA SiC is produced by pressureless sintering submicron silicon carbide powder. The sintering process results in a self-bonded, fine grain (less than 10μm) SiC product which is extremely hard, lightweight and low in porosity. The material can be formed into complex shapes with greater than 98% theoretical density. Hexoloy® SA SiC is highly resistant to corrosion, erosion, sliding wear, high tem- perature and thermal shock.
