SELECTED PROPERTIES OF SILICON CARBIDE

With reference to chapter cfn3-4 "SILICON CARBIDE" it is unnecessary to stress here the following two aspects:

  • There are different types of silicon carbide with different properties.
  • Considering the material requirements of innovative fuel elements and comparing them with the properties of different SiC types, it is easy to see:

Pressure less sintered silicon carbide SSiC is considered to be the best choice!
