Electrical Resistivity @ RT***
* Composition code: Si = free silicon metal; C = free graphite; SiC = silicon carbide
* Knoop 100-gm load
*** Test Bar Size: 3 x 4 x 45 mm (0.118" x 0.157" x 1.772")
*** Dependent upon dopants in Hexoloy® SA SiC which will decrease electrical resistivity
These blanks are typically less than 25.4 mm thick, though thicker blanks are available. High volume blanks with quantities over 500 pcs are available as dry-pressed product up to 130.18 mm outer diameter.
