What is the boron carbide property?

Boron carbide powder Also known as black Diamond, this organic substance is a powder with the chemical formula B4C. It’s usually a gray or black color. It is among the three hardest substances known (the two others being diamond and cubic boron-nitride).
Boron carbide looks like a shiny black crystal. Boron carbide has a harder surface than industrial diamonds, but is softer than silicon carbide. Ceramics made of boron-carbide are less fragile than other ceramics.

Boron carbide powder has a high stability to acid. It is also stable in all concentrated and dilute acids or alkali solutions. Boron carbide in an atmosphere is essentially stable below 800degC. The boron oxide that is formed when it oxidizes at a high temperature is lost during the gas phase. This leads to its instabilities and oxidation into carbon dioxide and trioxide.

What uses does boron carburide have?

Boron carbide is a powder with low density and high strength. It also has good chemical stability, and can be used in high-temperature applications. It’s used as a ceramic reinforcing phase, in materials that are resistant to wear, and in armors, neutron absorbers for reactors, and other lightweight products. As boron carbide can be easily manufactured and has a low cost, it is used more than diamonds and cubic boron. It can be used to replace diamond in some areas and is often used for grinding, drilling, and grinding.

Abrasive material
The boron carbide was used as an abrasive coarse material for many years. Due to its high melting point it is not easily cast into artificial items, but can be shaped by melting the powder in high temperatures. Boron carbide powder can be used to polish, grind, drill, and grind hard materials, such as gemstones and cemented carbide.

Coating paint
Boron carbide may also be used on warships or helicopters as a ceramic surface. It is lightweight with the ability to resist armor-piercing bullets.

Due to their high hardness and resistance to wear, boron-carbide nozzles will eventually replace materials like cemented carbide/tungsten and silicon carbide.

Boron carbide powder can also be used for the production of metal borides as well as smelting sodium-boron, boron alloys and special welding.
