Sintered Ceramics: Silicon Carbide

Sintered ceramic - Silicon carbide

Overview of sintered Silicon Carbide

Final Advanced Materials manufactures ceramic parts with precision. From the blanks obtained by moulding or extrusion, we get these shaped parts by diamond machining for dense ceramics.

We provide the definition and machining of prototypes, as well as the individual production in small and large series. We design and machine the ceramic components adapted to specific customer applications.

We only work with calibrated and qualified ceramics of high purity. The ceramic parts that we transform, reproduce without modification, the physical characteristics of the blanks before machining, without any variation or mechanical depreciation. 

The intrinsic properties to ceramics, i.e. hardness, abrasion resistance, compressive strength, resistance to high temperatures, to thermal shocks, high dielectric strength, all these qualities are preserved and reproduced on the finished parts.

Silicon carbide products are characterized by properties which are pronounced to a varying degree, depending upon the type of carbide used (dense or porous). These products generally show very high strength, even at high temperatures, and are distinguished by their hardness and their resistance to wear, corrosion, oxidation, and thermal impacts. They also feature a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, very high thermal conductivity and good tribological properties. In addition, they are electrical semiconductors.
