Non-Oxide Ceramics

The Advanced Ceramics Industry, also know as Engineered Ceramics or the Technical Ceramics Industry, includes applications such as ceramic wear parts and ceramic armor. Superior Graphite is a key global supplier of high performance sub-micron silicon carbide powder to these markets, as well as a manufacturer of ceramic armor tiles.

The highly-sinterable Beta silicon carbide and Alpha silicon carbide powder from Superior Graphite, Sinter-Pur Ceramic Powder, is ideal for processing into parts due to its proven sintered mechanical properties, along with traditional corrosion/oxidation resistance, very hard low fracture toughness and thermal conductivity.

In addition to supplying Sinter-Pur Ceramic Powder to the armor market, Superior Graphite is further processing Sinter-Pur powder into ceramic tiles and shapes. Protect Tiles® are economical, pressureless sintered SiC armor tiles, which provide lighter weight and better ballistic performance for advanced ceramic systems.
