Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Due to its inherent properties (mainly to its insolubility in water) it is technically impossible to measure the sorption/desorption of silicon carbide experimentally, nor to calculate the sorption coefficient based on the POW using QSAR-methods.

Based on the physicochemical properties silicon carbide is expected to have a low potential for adsorption; in contrast it can be expected that silicon carbide would behave similarly to a particulate inert matter.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
