Abstract: Silicon carbide (SiC) is a rare naturally occurring mineral, but manufactured industrially at a large scale. SiC may exist in non-fibrous (angular) and fibrous forms (polycrystalline fibres and single crystal whiskers). It may also appear as cleavage fragments, platelets and in amorphous form, and in a large range of particles sizes. Angular SiC is produced mainly for use as abrasives and cutting devices, but also as a refractory product, in ceramic applications, in heating elements, electronic ... more
