Silicon Carbide is an aggressive sharp angular abrasive, and is the hardest blasting abrasive available. Silicon Carbide particles fracture in use to produce new sharp cutting edges. The hardness of the material greatly reduces blasting cycle times.
Silicon Carbide produces an etched finish; finer grits produce a dull matt finish, while larger grits produce a deep rough etch. Silicon Carbide is an aggressive blasting media with a very fast cutting speed.
