Title: METHOD OF MAKING REFRACTORY BODIES

Abstract

A method is given for the manufacture of silicon carbide bodies that are characterized by high density, high purity, and superior resistance to oxidative deterioration. Dense silicon bodies are obtained by a process in which granular silicon carbide, a carbonizable material, and a carbonaceous material are mixed together, the mixture is shaped as desired, and then the shape is fired in the presence of more than the stoichiometric amount of silicon. The carbonizable material preferably includes a temporary binder that is set before the firing step to hold the mix in shape for firing.
