High-Performance Silicon Carbide Foam for Industrial Use

the nature of silicon carbide foam

Silicon carbide, as “a small expert” in industrial applications, is important in many aspects. Its unique physical and chemical properties make it an indispensable material in many fields.

Today we will introduce a wide range of applications of silicon carbide – silicon carbide foam.

Introduction to Silicon Carbide Foam

 The main component of silicon carbide foam is fine-grained silicon carbide powder. It is a type of porous ceramic material with a three-dimensional interconnected network structure.

It is formed by combining materials with different mechanical and chemical properties such as metal, foam silicon carbide porous ceramics and high-performance resins in a unique composite method to form a new type of composite wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant pipeline with unique structure and overall enhancement.
