High quality, water classified green silicon carbide powders are graded to exacting standards. SurfacePrep ensures that the silicon carbide powders we sell are produced using premier techniques to optimize shape, surface area, and density.

Green silicon carbide is a high-purity silicon carbide. Green silicon carbide is a more friable crystal than black silicon carbide.

Green silicon carbide is used for grinding hard alloys where cool cutting is of the utmost importance.
