What exactly is Zirconium Carbide ZrC?
Zirconium caride (ZrC) is a dark gray cubic crystal with metallic shine. Crispy. The melting point is 3532. The boiling point for water is 5100. The density is 6.73 g/cm3. The hardness of Mohs is 8 to 9. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid as well as cold water. Hydrofluoric acid, high-temperature sulfuric acid that contains hydrogen peroxide as well as nitric acid are the best solvents. It reacts strongly with chlorine in high temperatures, forming zirconium tricholoride. Zirconia is formed when it’s ignited in the air at 700 degrees Celsius. ZrC does not react with water.
Zirconium carbonide is a high melting point material that has great hardness and excellent high temperature Refractory. It is used as a propellant solid in rocket motors. It is used to make alloy steel. It is also used to make zirconium tetrachloride as well as zirconium.
What uses Zirconium Carbide ZrC?
Fire-resistant coatings that are resistant to fire are able to be used on nuclear reactors with niobium or zirconium caride, which is free from hafnium. It is a good choice to coat nuclear fuel uranium dioxide or thorium dioxide particles due to its low neutron absorption and weak sensitivity to radiation damage. The coating is typically applied by thermal chemicalvapor deposition on the fluidized bed reactor. It also has a high emissivity even at very high temperatures. This makes it a good material for photovoltaic thermal radiation as well as field emitter tips.
It can also be employed as an abrasive cladding material, cermets, incandescent filaments, or cutting tools.
What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC a Ceramic?
Zirconium carbide is a ceramic material that is hard-refractory is extremely durable.
It is highly impervious to corrosion. This IV interstitial transition metal carbide a member of ultra-high temperature ceramics or UHTCs. The strong Zr–C bonds make it extremely tough and has high melting ( 3530degC) and modulus ( 4405GPa) and the hardness (22.5GPa).
Zirconium Carbide ZrC Melting Point
The melting temperature of zirconium-carbidide is 3532°C (6390°F).
