Silicon Carbide Rings

Silicon Carbide Rings

Seal rings made of silicon carbide are, among other things, ideal for use in abrasive and corrosive media. Thanks to their extreme hardness, in particular, they enable applications involving the smallest amount of friction and wear possible.

You benefit from these advantages:

  • Material individually matched to your needs
  • Sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) and silicon-infiltrated silicon carbide (SiSiC) possible
  • Extremely high resistance to friction and wear
  • Outstanding thermal resistance
  • Great thermal conductivity
  • Small expansion coefficient
  • Very lightweight
  • Drinking-water approval/FDA-approved
  • Up to 900 mm diameter possible
  • Extremely high corrosion resistance with no material fatigue
  • Reliable performance, even under the toughest of conditions
  • Possible materials: SSiC, SiSiC, SSiC/C and SiSiC/C
