Several methods are employed to produce high-purity SiC powder, including the Acheson process, carbo-thermal reduction and combustion synthesis (VCS). The Acheson process involves mixing commercial carbon source with rice husk lime and heating the mixture at 1700-2500 deg C in order to acquire refined SiC powder. The VCS method, on the other hand, uses a continuous furnace to heat up raw materials in order to achieve SiC powder at a high temperature.

Pre-oxidation treatments can effectively improve the metal-ceramic wettability of nano-SiC particles and also induce in situ reaction between Zn matrix and the pre-oxidized nano-SiC particles, resulting in strong interface bonding between them [34].

In the present study, Zn/nano-SiC biocomposites were prepared by selective laser melting (SLM) using pre-oxidized or un-pre-oxidized nano-SiC, and their mechanical properties were evaluated. The results indicated that the Zn/nano-SiC composites with the pre-oxidized nano-SiC showed better mechanical properties, such as higher transgranular fracture strength and compressive yield strength of 171.5 MPa. This is mainly due to the strong interface bonding between the pre-oxidized nano-SiC and the Zn matrix, which was strengthened via in situ interface reaction. Furthermore, the distribution of Zn2SiO4 distributed at the interface between Zn and nano-SiC may also serve as a protection layer to hinder the penetration of corrosive solution among Zn grains, thereby improving the corrosion resistance of the biocomposites.
