Metallurgical Silicon Carbide

Silicon carbide is used for the de-oxidation and re-carburation of cast iron and steel in foundries. Metallurgical grade Silicon Carbide grain is a unique material for use in the production of iron and steel.  It is used in the foundry industry for electric furnace production of gray, ductile, and malleable iron.  It is an excellent source of carbon and silicon, promoting nucleation and rendering the iron more responsive to inoculation, deoxidizing the iron, which enhances furnace lining life.

In addition to Crystalline Silicon Carbide (97%+ SiC), we offer three supplementary grades of Metallurgical Silicon Carbide.

Metallurgical Silicon Carbide

Carbosil Metallurgical Silicon Carbide

High Grade Metallurgical 88-92% SiC. In addition to the applications mentioned above, Carbosil can also used as a deoxidizing agent in LD/BOF/ladle furnaces.

SUBSiC85 Metallurgical Silicon Carbide

Medium Grade Metallurgical 82-88% SiC. In addition to the applications mentioned above, SUBSiC85 can also used as a deoxidizing agent in LD/BOF/ladle furnaces.

SUBSiC35 Metallurgical Silicon Carbide

Low Grade Metallurgical 30-40% SiC. SUBSiC35 is supplied to the steel and foundry industry also in applications mentioned above.
