Silicon carbide bricks are refractory bricks made by sintering silicon carbide and other fine powders at high temperatures. The addition of carbon monoxide can help improve the strength and wear resistance of the refractory bricks, while also helping to reduce costs. The addition of silicon dioxide can help improve the chemical corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity of the refractory bricks. The combination of these two components gives the large refractory bricks excellent overall performance. Therefore, this type of brick has a wide range of applications in high-temperature kilns.

  • According to the bonding method, silicon carbide bricks can be divided into oxide-bonded (clay-bonded silicon carbide bricks, mullite-bonded silicon carbide bricks, corundum-bonded silicon carbide bricks), nitride-bonded (si3N4-bonded silicon carbide bricks, sialon-bonded silicon carbide bricks), self-bonded (β-SiC-bonded silicon carbide bricks, recrystallized silicon carbide bricks), and silicon-infiltrated reaction-bonded silicon carbide bricks.
  • According to the difference in the content of chemical components, silicon carbide bricks are mainly divided into: oxide bonded SiC brick, green SiC brick, Corundum silicon carbide brick, mullite silicon carbide brick, high alumina SiC brick.
