A new company with a long tradition

The Fiven company is the result of a recent corporate carve-out of Saint-Gobain's Silicon Carbide business by OpenGate Capital. The experience and history of our business reaches back to over 100 years.

Leader in Silicon Carbide

Fiven is clearly established as the worldwide leader in the business of silicon carbide grains and powders. At the heart of industry, we pride ourselves in serving many customers, leaders in their own segment, across the world, through long-term, trust-based relationships.

About our products

Markets & Applications

Silicon carbide is a high performance material suitable for many industries and applications. It offers great mechanical strength, high temperature resistance, chemical intertness even at high temperature and can act as a semiconductor.

In recent years, we have streamlined and improved our processes to better serve our customers in applications such as metallurgy, refractories, and abrasives. Moreover, we have successfully launched new products for emerging applications in the field of electronics, passive armor, and energy-efficient or emissions-control technologies.
