3M™ Silicon Carbide Blasting Nozzles deliver high quality, consistent operating conditions, uniform blasting performance and cost effectiveness. Silicon carbide provides high wear and corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and low distortion under thermal loads. These attributes help extend the life of your blasting nozzles.
A Proven Performer for a Wide Variety of Industries
Designed for performance and durability, 3M™ Silicon Carbide Blasting Nozzles withstand some of the most demanding conditions when dispensing abrasive materials. For optimal performance, the blasting nozzle bore must retain its original size as long as possible. The microstructure and physical properties of 3M silicon carbide slow the wearing process, delivering a longer service life for these blasting nozzles compared to commonly used metals and tungsten carbide. 3M silicon carbides have an excellent track record over decades of use, making them a tried and tested option for industrial use.
Properties of 3M Silicon Carbide
Our 3M silicon carbide provides high wear and corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and low distortion under thermal loads. This material exhibits tribological performance under high load, including pressure, sliding speed and temperature.
3M™ Silicon Carbide Grade F: The All-purpose Grade
Grade F offers good chemical resistance, low specific density, high hardness and wear resistance, outstanding thermal conductivity properties and resistance to fluctuations in temperature. 3M silicon carbide grade F combines all these specific advantages of sintered silicon carbide, particularly for bearings and seals for use in pumps.
