Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder:

Chromium carbide

It is very strong refractory clay material. It’s a fine grey powder that is very similar to Tongbaishi, a natural mineral.

Chrome carbide

This material is resistant to corrosion and has excellent high-temperature oxide properties. Its thermal properties are comparable to steel. It’s a great material choice for many commercial applications. You can make a variety of chromium carbide compounds, which each have slightly different properties and uses.

Cr carbide

This is used for thermal spraying to protect the surface of the underlying metal and as an additon to wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials. Applications of Chromium carbide are especially effective in areas where there is sliding abrasion.

Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder produced


The combination of aluminothermic and vacuum furnacing is required to make chromium carbide at temperatures up to 1500oC. After preparing the mixture of chromium metallic, chromium dioxide and carbon, it is loaded into a furnace. Temperature is increased to 1500°C by reducing the furnace’s pressure. After the carbon reacts to the chromium dioxide, it forms carbon monoxide and chromium metal. These are then drawn out into vacuum pumps. This is then combined with remaining carbon to create the chromium carbid.

This determines which grade of chromium caride is made. It all depends on the balance of chromium oxide and chromium heavy metal. The product quality must be controlled rigorously to meet aerospace-quality standards.

Chromium Carbide Properties:

A gray powder containing 13.34% Carbon, Chromium carbide, which is insoluble in water and resists acidity, alkali, and phosphorous, has an orthorhombic crystal form. Chromium Carbide density ranges from 6.65 to 6.68 g/cm3, Chromium Carbide melting temperature 1890 degrees; boiling point 3800 degrees. The material has a high melting temperature and is highly resistant to corrosion, wear, and oxidation. It can be used in environments between 1000-1100 degrees. You can use it as a thermal coating material to protect metal surfaces. It’s also used often as a hard alloy. It is used in grain refiners as well as other components that are corrosion and wear-resistant. Chromium carbide, a Chromium-based cermet, has excellent resistance to high temperatures. It is also very resistant to heat and only slightly discolors after being heated at 982°C for 5 hours. 18-8 stainless-steel has been severely damaged. WC-6Co alloy was also affected.

Chromium carbide Cr3C2 powder is used

High melting point, chrome carbide Cr3C2 dust is resistant to wear and corrosion. It also resists oxidation in high temperature environments. The powder is made from hard alloy particles composed of nickel-chromium alloy and plasma sprayed. This allows for wear and high-temperature resistance.

1. It is widely used for aircraft engines, petrochemical machinery, and equipment. This can significantly increase the machine’s service life. You can also use it as a grain refiner to produce cemented caride and other wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant components. The high oxidation resistance of ceramics made with Cr3C2 is impressive at high temperatures.

2. It is used for chrome carbide ceramics. It is used to melt-spray a thin layer of chromium on metals and ceramics. To increase machinery life, it is widely used in aircraft engines as well as petrochemical machinery. This is used to spray semiconductor films.

3. Used to protect metal surfaces.

4. Use additives to make wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant materials

5. Chromium-carbide coating : For sealing seals, bearings and valve seals. A wear-resistant and cost-effective option, the Chromium Carbide Overlay greatly increases equipment’s lifespan.

6. It is the microcrystalline component of cemented carides such as vanadium carbonide that can be used to prevent the formation of sub-micron grains in pressing and sintering.
