Reaction bonded silicon carbide is known by many names. For example, it is called siliconized silicon carbide, which is abbreviated to SiSiC. The manufacturing process happens because of a reaction between graphite or porous carbon with molten silicon. Apart from this, it is also called siliconized silicon carbide because of the leftover traces of silicon. Let’s find out more about this material.
There are many methods of producing silicon carbide. However, as for as the pure form is concerned, it contains a small number of chemicals known as sintering aids. The purpose of adding these chemicals is to support the process of sintering. It is done by enabling lower temperatures of sintering.
