XICAR® high temperature sintered silicon carbide (HEXOLOY alternative) industrial products for use in the non-ferrous industry up to 1,900° Celsius in a controlled atmosphere
Sintered silicon carbide provides a unique combination of physical properties, including high mechanical strength, toughness, excellent thermal shock resistance and resistance to corrosion. As a result, it is ideal for applications involving exposure to high-temperature liquids such as alloy melts and exposure to hot gases, with applications in mineral and chemical processing kilns and furnaces.
HEXOLOY has been a standard sintered silicon carbide material throughout the ceramics industry for many years. It is available in several grades depending on the material’s specific densities, resistances, and grain structures, each with its preferred applications. HEXOLOY SE, which has extreme temperature resistance and resistance to thermal shock, is used in applications that demand corrosion resistance and extreme temperatures up to 1,900 C. Where to buy comparable sintered silicon carbide products like hexoloy?
At Sialon, we have developed an alternative sintered silicon carbide, XICAR, that performs at least as well or better than HEXOLOY products while offering significant price advantage.
We are now offering a range of products in this revolutionary new material, including thermocouple protection tubes, crucibles, and heater elements. We also tailor new XICAR products in collaboration with our customers.
