For special appliions, silicon carbide is produced by a nuer of advanced processes. Reaction-bonded silicon carbide is produced by mixing SiC powder with powdered carbon and a plasticizer, forming the mixture into the desired shape, burning off the plasticizer, and then infusing the fired object with gaseous or molten silicon, which reacts with the carbon to form additional SiC.

Silicon carbide (reaction bonded) Silicon carbide (alpha sintered) Silicon carbide/graphite composite The order of the above list is also influenced by the shape of the component part as well as the stocking and pricing policy of the manufacturer.
An Overview on CVD Coated Silicon Carbide | Advanced …
Until recently, the only commercially available polycrystalline silicon carbide has been sintered or reaction bonded hexagonal alpha silicon carbide. Design engineers have had to contend with the fact that the traditional powder consolidation process produces two-phase materials, i.e., some reaction bonded SiC contains as much as 40% free silicon.

4/11/2008· What is claimed is: 1. A substantially dense sintered body comprising: silicon carbide grains; a SiO 2 /Si 2 N 2 O matrix; and silicon nitride grains substantially evenly distributed throughout the SiO 2 /Si 2 N 2 O matrix; wherein the silicon nitride grains are substantially finer than the silicon carbide grains; wherein the silicon carbide grains are substantially evenly distributed
the best carbide silica
Silicon carbide is a hard covalently bonded material predominantly produced by the carbothermal reduction of silica (typically using the Acheson process). Several commercial grades of silicon carbide exist such as nitride bonded, sintered, reaction bonded, SiAlON bonded and clay bonded.
