The thermal spraying of silicon carbide is made possible by chemically depositing a protective layer on each silicon carbide particle. The protective layer acts as an oxidation protector, and melts during thermal spraying to allow some plastic deformation and building a coating layer.
The coated particles are then agglomerated to free-flowing granules for easy handling, and can be classified to different size fractions. 15 to 45 micron size is our most-sold size range, with other ranges available upon request. ThermaSiC 15-45 can be sprayed by HVOF and APS processes.
