SC-1600 is a water-based coating of Beta Silicon Carbide, used for protecting graphite from oxidation to 1600°C (2912°F) in air/oxidizing atmospheres. Thus, SC-1600 is the highest use-temperature oxidation-protection paintable coating available for graphite parts/components


Key Attributes

  • Extends Lifetime & Reduces Maintenance
  • Provides a Hard, Abrasion-Resistant Layer
  • High Emissivity due to SiC
  • Usable on all Graphite Types
  • Withstands Cyclic Use
  • Forms Sealed-Porosity-Coating That Stops Oxidation: Performs Best if Used > 700°C  (>1292°F) due to Pore-Sealing
  • Water-based, Ready-to-use, Like House paint


Ideal Uses

  • Oxidation Reduction and Prevention with Graphite to >=1600 C
  • Abrasion-Resistant Surface Sealant Layer for Graphite
