Nano Silicon Carbide
Nanomakers SiC nanoparticles
have unique characteristics in terms of purity, homogeneity and size.
The average grain size as well as their surface chemistry can be adjusted.
They are produced using a robust technology patented and exploited industrially by Nanomakers for many years. This technology has now demonstrated its ability to provide supply in industrial quantities.
Nanomakers offering includes the SiC - standard grade (NM SiC 99) and a range of functionalized SiC (SiC coated by Silicon, SiC coated by Carbon and SiC doped by Nitrogen).
Nano SiC – NMSiC99
Silicon carbide nanoparticle - standard version
It is the standard grade, crystallinity (3-C or β). Its metallic purity is > 99.95% (3.5N).
It contains less than 1 % wt. of oxygen.
This grade is designed for high-tech applications in the semiconductors as well as in electronics, aeronautic, aerospace, automotive, jewelry for certain parts of equipment and structure. It is well suited to materials such as elastomers, polymers, resins, composites, metals and ceramics.
of SiC nanoparticle - standard version
Available standard sizes:
@ 35 nm
@ 75 nm
Low size deviation
Thermomechanical properties of SiC bulk
The NMSiC99 grade is supplied with a guaranteed low oxygen content (<1% wt.) and low metallic traces.
Functionalized Nano SiC
Specific grades of nano SiC developed for specific needs
It's a range of SiC developed by Nanomakers to answer requests from specific applications.
Range of functionalized SiC:
Silicon coated SiC - NM SiCΩSi 99
This type of functionalization facilitates the dispersion of nano SiC in water-based or organic based solvents.
Carbon coated SiC - NM SiCΩC 99
This type of functionalization reinforces the existing properties of NM SiC 99.
Those two products can be used for instance in fluoroelastomers or silicones to improve their mechanical performances as well as their resistance to aggressive environment (ex.: seals for semiconductor applications).
Nitrogen doped SiC - NM SiCΔN 99
This type of functionalization can bring some interesting electrical properties to NMSiC99.
