Silicon Carbide SiC Nanoparticles 

Back

Nanomakers Silicon Carbide (SiC) nanoparticles have unique characteristics in terms of homogeneity, purity and customization possibilities. The average grain size as well as their surface chemistry can be adjusted.

 

They are produced using a robust technology patented by Nanomakers and exploited industrially for many years that has demonstrated its ability to provide supply in industrial quantities .

Nanomakers offering includes the SiC - Standard grade (NM SiC 99) and a range of SiC functionalized (NM SiCΩSi 99 and NM SiCΩC 99). 

Nano SiC can enhance drastically performances of various materials (elastomers, polymers, metals, ceramics)

SiC - Standard grade

SiC functionalized

It is the high purity grade. Its purity is 99.999 % (5N). It contains less than 1 wt% oxygen.

 

This grade is designed for high-tech applications in the semiconductor as well as in aeronautics, aerospace, automotive for certain pieces of equipment and structure. It is well suited to polymers resins, composites and metals enhancing,

Specifications:

Available standard sizes:

  • (@15nm): please contact us

  • @ 35nm

  • @ 75nm

 

Impurities:

The grade NM SiC 99 is supplied with a guaranteed low oxygen content (<1% by mass) and some metallic traces.

 

Product Data Sheet available on request

It's a range of SiC developed by Nanomakers to answer requests from specific applications. The standard size is 35 nm but others are available on request.

 

Range of SiC functionalized:

  • NM SiCΩSi 99

The silicon carbide core is coated with a silicon rich layer. This type of functionalization facilitates the dispersion of nano SiC in water-based solvents or polymers.

  • NM SiCΩC 99

The silicon carbide core is coated with a carbon rich layer. This type of functionalization reinforces the existing properties of NM SiC 99.

Those two products can be used for instance in fluoroelastomers or silicones to improve their mechanical performances as well as their resistance to aggressive environment (as seals, mainly in use for semiconductor applications for instance).
