silicon carbide process for making silicon carbide ceramic

Silicon Carbide is a hard and brittle ceramic material second only in terms of hardness to diamond and cubic boron nitride. SiC has an interlaced crystal structure which features different stacking sequences or polytypes that offer distinct properties. Commercially, SiC is produced through an electric arc furnace at 2200 degrees Celsius by reacting silica sand powder with petroleum coke; once formed into an green body it can then be further processed  for specific applications by special silicon carbide process.
