Excellent properties for high performance abrasives


Silicon carbide is a ceramic material with an excellent hardness, which is only surpassed by diamond, cubic boron nitride and boron carbide.

Due to its high abrasion resistance and relatively low cost, silicon carbide is used as a loose or solid abrasive material in a variety of applications.

These hard and brittle abrasive grains, which tend to disintegrate under pressure, make SiC articles sharper, cut faster and produce finer scratch patterns on most surfaces.

Silicon carbide grinding tools are widely used for grinding steel, cast iron, carbide, aluminum & non-ferrous metals, plastics & rubber.

Fiven offers a full range of macro and micro grains in black and green quality as well as various particle size distributions based on FEPA, ANSI, JIS and CAMI standards.

A range of grades is available reflecting different surface treatments from air and water dedusting to chemical surface treatment.

Application Examples


The Coated market uses silicon carbide for a variety of applications including but not limited to sanding of non-ferrous metals, plastics, glass, fibrous woods and enamels.


Silicon carbide is used as a cutting medium and often found in cut-off grinding wheels due to its superior toughness and hardness.


Grinding requires rapid removal of materials and SiC is an obvious choice due to its abrasive properties when used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, pipework, construction, welding, foundry and metallurgy markets.


SiC offers the required level of quality for various lapping applications, making it a preferred material for softer materials. Various types of lapping are used to create smooth, flat, unpolished surfaces.


Silicon carbide is commonly used to create a smooth and shiny surface and is well suited for many different polishing applications.
