Summary

The steadily increasing demand for small parts made from reaction bonded or “siliconized” silicon carbide at last is rapidly pushing manufacture of the parts out of the laboratory and pilot plant and into full scale production. New products, from washerless faucets to the most sophisticated hot gas heat exchangers are now being delivered on pre-planned schedules. Most of these products, including shaft seals and combustion chambers, have required extensive qualification testing before acceptance and many more products are in the testing pipeline, thus promising further production increases.
