Silicon carbide balls are less frequently used than other ceramic materials. Due to its raw material costs and difficulty to machine. Silicon carbide offers the best heat and corrosion resistance of all the ceramic materials. Silicon Carbide is best used under low loads, low to moderate speeds and in highly corrosive environments.
