Ceramic Fixturing Material Hexoloy® SA
Technical Data Hexoloy® SA SiC is a pressureless, sintered form of alpha silicon carbide, with a density greater than 98 percent theoretical. It has a very fine grain structure (4 - 10 microns) for excellent wear resistance and contains no free silicon, which makes it highly chemically resistant in both oxidizing and reducing environments. Corrosion Resistance The corrosion resistance of Hexaloy® SA SiC permits superior performance in environments of hot gasses and liquids including strong acids and bases, even at extremely high temperatures. The results indicate that by comparision, Hexaloy® SA SiC outperforms tungsten carbide and aluminum oxide in all chemical categories. The ability of Hexaloy® SA SiC to resist corrosion along with its excellent surface finish characteristics makes it ideallu suited to applications involving heat exchangers,mechanica l seal faces, valves, bearings and other mineral and chemical processing equipment.
