Silicon Carbide

The silicon carbide is a compound obtained from carbon and quartz sand combined at high temperatures (2500°C). The result is a compound which is free from iron.

It can be reused during the sandblasting process more times – which makes it a cheaper alternative than other products for sandblasting.

It has a sharp shape and the peculiarity of high hardness, only one point Mohs lower than diamond.


The features of silicon carbide make it a very aggressive abrasive for sandblasting, which can be employed to sandblast very hard materials such as tempered steels, ceramic, etc.

It can be used in free casting sandblasting machines and in pressure or depression compressed-air sandblasting cabins.
