The SICcast® material is primarily made of silicon carbide
(SiC) which is mixed under vacuum with epoxy resin (EP) as a bonding
agent and is then cast into molds. Pumps made of this innovative material
have helped for years now to reduce maintenance costs noticeably as
a result of their extremely high resistance to abrasion and corrosion.
The following are examples for abrasion and corrosion of pump parts
made of stainless steel and SICcast® under identical operating
conditions (absorber circulation pump after an operating time of 16,000
