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.

Australian Made
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.

Cost Effectiveness
Products made in SiCon™  are outlasting traditional ceramic, ceramic composites, rubber, urethane by factors greater than 8-12.

Concord Experience
