Through a number of investments and internal growth projects over the past 30 years, the Saint-Gobain Group has built its Silicon Carbide Department. We are now clearly established as the worldwide leader in the business of SiC Grains and Powders. At the heart of industry, we pride ourselves in serving many customers, leaders in their own segment, across the world, through long-term, trust-based relationships.
Our industrial expertise relies on a century-old tradition inherited from the entities we have integrated, such as Norton, Carborundum, Casil and Mountain Abrasives. In recent years, we have evidently streamlines and improved our processes to better serve our customers in established applications such as metallurgy, refractories and abrasives.
Moreover we have also successfully launched new products for emerging applications in the field of electronics, photovoltaics, passive armor and energy-efficient or emissions –control technologies.
Generally speaking, the goals we set for our products and services are to improve the performance of our clients´own products, to improve the efficiency of their manufacturing processes or to extend the lifetime of their equipment.
As a proof of our responsibility towards reliability, quality and HSE, we have made the strategic decision to keep in-house all the manufacturing steps from raw materials to final grains & powders products.
