SiCon™ - Silicon Carbide
SiCon™ silicon carbide is an advanced industrial ceramic primarily used for
wear components, particularly those demanding the highest strength, thermal
properties and chemical and abrasion resistance.
SiCon™ is produced by firing silicon and carbon at controlled elevated
temperature within a non-oxygen furnace. SiCon™ is categorised a metal ceramic
composite, it has been referred to as Reaction - Bonded Silicon carbide,
Infiltrated Silicon carbide, Siliconised Silicon Carbide or simply SiC.
Concord Engineering has established a ceramics plant in Perth, Western Australia
for the manufacture and supply of SiCon™. Concord's Ceramic facilities are state
of the art and enable Concord to offer complete SiCon™ components from
tool design and fabrication to final product formation firing.
Products made in SiCon™ are outlasting traditional ceramic, ceramic
composites, rubber, urethane by factors greater than 8-12.
Concord Engineering is well known throughout Australia for engineered
polyurethane and ceramic products. Concord has been servicing Australian
industry for over 30 years and has extensive experience in wear solutions, tool
making, component design and manufacture.
Quality is Assured
SiCon™ production is subject to detailed process control procedures with
manufacturing parameters continuously monitored. All finished products have
undergone meticulous inspection and testing.
