Silicon Carbide Applications
The only synthesis of silicon and carbon is silicon carbide (SiC), commonly known as adamantine. SiC occurs in nature in the form of the mineral silica carbide, but is very rare. However, since 1893, powdered silicon carbide has been produced in large quantities for use as an abrasive. Silicon carbide has been used as an abrasive for more than 100 years, primarily in grinding wheels and numerous other grinding applications.
There are currently four main applications for silicon carbide, namely: functional ceramics, advanced refractories, abrasives and metallurgical raw materials.

Black Silicon Carbide
Black silicon carbide is a widely used abrasive product, with excellent wear resistance, high hardness, high density, low impurities and other advantages, commonly used in sandblasting grinding, polishing, free grinding, making various abrasives, etc.
Green Silicon Carbide
Green silicon carbide is made from quartz sand and petroleum coke refined in a resistance furnace, due to its relatively stable chemical properties, high thermal conductivity, low coefficient of thermal expansion, and good wear resistance.
