Plating SiC with Al


We would like to know if anyone has experience in plating aluminum onto electrically conductive silicon carbide ceramic (SiC). Is is possible? Is is practical?

If Al is not possible, any other low density material is acceptable. An electrically conductive metal is preferable.

The configuration is 2" x 2" x 0.25" tiles with a fairly smooth (approx. 12 microinch) surface finish. Want to plate about 20 tiles to start. Then would like to try to plate an array of 6 tiles into a 12" x 12" assembly. If successful, production volumes would be about 10,000 12" x 12" assemblies per year.

We are looking for a company to subcontract this work out to. We are the SiC manufacturer.

Is the material pure Silicon Carbide or there is any metal binder?
