How does 3D printed Silicon Carbide hold up against other forms of Silicon Carbide?

The characteristic strength for the lower density 3D-printed material is 297 Mpa, as compared to 389 MPa for bulk Chemical Vapor Deposition SiC (CVD- SiC). However, the modulus is significantly higher for the 3D-printed material, highlighting a tighter distribution in fracture strength. The resulting material may be densified to >90% of the theoretical density of SiC and consists of original powder grains embedded in the CVI-SiC matrix.

What industries does 3Dcarbide serve?

Here are just some of the industries that currently use SiC, and will benefit from faster prototyping and free-form shapes allowed by our manufacturing process:

  • Defense
  • Medical
  • Sports
  • Nuclear
  • Electronics and compuation
  • Aviation
  • Automotive

Our techniques are used to make nuclear fuel for nuclear fuel manufacturers, primarily Ultra Safe Nuclear.
