Silicon Carbide Grit

Silicon Carbide Grit Tumbling Media

Silicon carbide is a highly durable tumbling media for hardened metal parts. Parts can be self-tumbled with silicon carbide tumbling grit when aggressive deburring, scale removal and edge rounding is required. Silicon carbide deburring grit will resist fracturing, allowing for extended tumbling cycles or multi-batch uses with excellent results.

Silicon Carbide Applications

High-quality silicon carbide edge rounding media is manufactured to create an angular, blocky shape. Silicon carbide tumbling abrasives have sharp edges ideal for use in tumbling barrels for 'sanding' edges and softening burrs. Silicon carbide has a very fast cutting speed and can be recycled and reused many more times than sand.

Silicon carbide edge rounding grit is brittle and sharp and can be used on wheels for grinding metal and nonmetallic materials of low tensile strength such as gray cast iron, brass, aluminum, stone materials, leather and rubber.
