Reaction bonded silicon carbide has proven to be an excellent material choice for wear applications such as pipe liners, flow control chokes and larger wear components in the mining as well as other industries. CALSIC RB offers an economical and reliable material option for many applications where the corrosion resistance or wear resistance of CALSIC S (sintered silicon carbide) is not necessary.
