Advanced Ceramic and Composite Materials
Consistent with its focus on engineered carbonaceous materials, Superior Graphite offers a range of high purity silicon carbide and boron carbide powders for sintered or hot pressed parts, coatings, and additives. Known for their extreme hardness, low specific gravity, and elevated temperature performance, these materials are used for ballistic armor, abrasives, composites, brake linings, heating elements, nozzles and igniters. Additionally, Superior Graphite is active in emerging technologies and processes related to Non-Oxide Ceramic Powders, such as:
SEM of Boron Carbide
SEM of Beta Silicon Carbide
How can we help address your challenges?
In addition to traditional non-oxide ceramic markets, such as wear parts, toner additives, and armor, Superior Graphite is active in developing new products for emerging markets. This includes both the industry-unique beta-silicon carbide products (synthesized domestically by Superior Graphite) and boron carbide powders. We produce these materials using state-of-the-art ceramic powder sizing capabilities, enabling controlled particle size distributions, and custom blends of powders, which supports dis-similar material, bi-modal, and other custom formulations.
