CARBIDES - Hardness combined with corrosion resistance

The strength and wear resistance of carbide ceramics are impressive. The H.C. Starck portfolio includes ten carbidic ceramic precursors, including chromium carbide (Cr3C2), titanium carbide (TiC, TiCN), and  others.

The most important carbidic ceramics we offer by far are materials based on silicon carbide (SiC) and boron carbide (B4C). They are produced using a variety of methods depending on the area of application.
