Washington Mills manufactures high-quality silicon carbide powders used in the production of kiln furniture such as; rollers, beams, plates and setters. Technical ceramics made from silicon carbide offer properties of hardness, strength, thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance at extremely high temperatures.
Ceramic products are defined as inorganic, nonmetallic solids made from oxide ceramics, non-oxide ceramics, or composites; each providing unique material properties of the finished piece, that are subject to high temperatures during manufacturing. Washington Mills produced inorganic fused minerals specifically designed for use in ceramic product manufacturing such as; technical ceramics, advanced, structural, electrical, magnetic, optical, chemical, thermal, mechanical, biological, and nuclear ceramics. Most of these products are manufactured with ceramic materials that have high density and low porosity and are used in high performance applications.
CARBOREX silicion carbide offers inert properties for use in ceramic diesel particulate filters such as; high temperature resistance and low thermal expansion.
