Silicon Carbide

Introduction of Silicon Carbide

Silicon carbide (SiC) is an inorganic compound of silicon and carbon. SiC ceramic materials have outstanding strength and hardness, high temperature resistance, wear resistance and chemical stability. SiC materials have obvious cost-effective advantages in special ceramic materials systems. In recent years, the 3D printing method of SiC ceramics has been widely concerned and studied. As shown in Fig. 1, the SiSiC lattice was fabricated with 3D printing combine replica method by using silicon carbide materials.

CD BioSciences is a 3D printing technology company serving worldwide, offering a wide range of high-quality materials. CD BioSciences can provide different forms and properties of SiC materials according to your needs and 3D printing technology (such as SLS, SLA), as well as custom composite materials containing SiC.

SiC material has been widely applied because of its low density, high melting point, excellent mechanical, thermal and chemical properties. However, due to its high hardness and brittleness, the traditional process is difficult to make complex shaped products, and the mold production cycle is long and the cost is high. The advantage of rapid integrated molding, no mold needed of 3D printing technology just to solve these problems, and the surface quality and dimensional accuracy of the 3D printed SiC ceramic products are better. Therefore, 3D printing is an innovative way of SiC ceramic manufacturing, which is especially suitable for complex shaped products and has broad application prospects.

CD BioSciences offers different forms of SiC 3D printing materials proven to strict standards, and can customize composites containing SiC. CD BioSciences's SiC and related materials are ready to support your high-quality products.
