Silicon Carbide

What is Silicon Carbide ​

Silicon carbide, an inorganic substance with the chemical formula SiC, is made from quartz sand, petroleum coke (or coal coke), wood chips (salt is added to produce green silicon carbide), and other raw materials smelted at high temperatures in resistance furnaces. Silicon carbide also exists in nature as a rare mineral, moissanite. In C, N, B and other non-oxide high technology refractory raw materials, silicon carbide for the most widely used, the most economical one, can be called gold steel sand or refractory sand. Chinese industrial production of silicon carbide is divided into two kinds of black silicon carbide and green silicon carbide, both hexagonal crystals, specific gravity of 3.20 to 3.25.

Silicon carbide and aluminum oxide are two of the most widely used abrasive materials. Both materials are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be used for a variety of applications.

Black SiC is suitable for working on cast iron, non-ferrous metal, rock, leather, rubber, etc. It is also broadly used as refractory material and metallurgical additive.

Green SiC is suitable for processing hard alloy, metallic and non-metallic materials with hard and brittle features such as copper, brass, aluminum, magnesium, jewel, optical glass, ceramics, etc. Super powder of it is also a kind of ceramic material.

Originally used as an abrasive material, Henan Superior Abrasives Silicon Carbide has since found applications in a variety of industries, including semiconductors.

Packaging & Shipping

We can offer 1MT/25Kg Woven plastic bags, and 25Kg Paper bags.

Our Silicon Carbide is carefully handled during storage and transportation to preserve the quality of our product in its original condition.

Quality Management Process


We are manufacture. We began to produce silicon carbide material since 2001.

Expect metallurgical black silicon carbide, the silicon carbide from us are all of A grade quality.

We will check the chemical content, cleanness of the SiC grain and powder. And inspect the gradation, bulk density of SiC grain and powder.

Yes, we are open to get third part quality test before delivery.

No. We only produce A grade silicon carbide produced from high quality melted SiC blocks.

Yes, we provide free samples within 1 kgs. Customer only need to bear the logistic cost.

Yes, it need to provide export license to Chinese customs. We could provide it and make customs clearance in China.

It depends on the quantity required. Generally 5-10 days for FCL(20-25MT).

Our capacity is 1800-2000MT per month, annually appr. 22000 MT.High
