Point boiling

Temperature is 5100 degC The apparent density of the material is 6.70 g/cm3. Mohs hardness ranges from 8-9 Is insoluble with cold water and hydrochloric acids. It dissolves in hot concentrated sulfuric and hydrofluoric acids, which contain nitric acid. At high temperatures, it reacts with chlorine to make zirconium trichloride. It burns at 700 degrees Celsius in the air and produces zirconia. You should not mix it with water.

ZrC powder

It is a powder of gray metal with cubic crystal structures. High resistance to corrosion. These interstitial transition metal carides of group IV are members of the ultra-high temperatures ceramics (UHTC). ZrC’s thermal conductivity is 20.5 W/m*K, and its electrical conductivity (resistivity at 43mO*cm) are both similar to zirconium. Due to the strong ZrC covalent bond, ZrC has a very high melting temperature (3530degC), high module (440 GPa), as well as a low hardness (25 GPa). ZrC’s density is 6.73g/cm3 lower than that of other carbides, such as TaC (14.75 g/cm3) and HfC (12.67g/cm3). ZrC appears to be well-suited for supersonic or rocket/hyper-jet aircraft where high density is a critical requirement.

As with most carbides from refractory materials, zirconium carbonide is substoichiometric. It contains carbon vacancies. If the content of carbon exceeds ZrC0.98, it is considered free carbon. Between 0.65 and 0.98, the ZrC-to-carbon ratio to metal is stable.

Zirconium Carbide ZrC Powder


Zirconium carbonide can be made in many different ways. A carbothermal reaction is the one that occurs between zirconia (graphite) and zirconium carbide. This produces powder. By sintering ZrC at temperatures higher than 2000 degC, the powder can be transformed into dense ZrC. ZrC powder can also be hot pressed to lower its sintering temperatures, resulting in fine ZrC particles. Full-density ZrC can be made by spark plasma sintering.

You can also make zirconium carbide using solution-based processes. It is done by heating the metal oxide in acetylacetone.

Chemical vapor deposition (CVP) is another method of manufacturing. It is possible to heat the zirconium sponge, and also decompose the gas halide.

ZrC cannot be used if it has a lower oxidation rate than 800C. The preparation of composite materials is one way to increase the resistance to oxidation for ZrC. ZrCZrB2 is the preferred composite material. These composite materials are capable of working at temperatures above 1800 °C. This situation can be improved by using another material, such as TRISO fuel particles as a barrier.


Zirconium Carbide ZrC Powder:

Zirconium carbide is a type of high melting material that has high hardness, excellent heat refractory and high hardness. This material is commonly used to make alloy steel. Also used to make zirconium tetrachloride and zirconium carbide. Zirconium carbonide can be used in an incandescent filament. It’s mainly used now as an abrasive. This can be used to make cemented carbide.

Zirconium carbonide is a ceramic hard material that can be used for cutting. The zirconium carbonide (ZRC), which is made by sintering has high temperatures oxidation resistance and high strength. It also exhibits high thermal conductivity, toughness, and high toughness. Additionally, nanopowders of zirconium carbonide (ZrC), exhibit high visible light absorption, great infrared reflection, and have large energy storage capabilities.

Coating material

As refractory coats in nuclear reactors, ZrC is not used. It is less susceptible to radiation damage and has a lower neutron absorption. You can use it as a protective coating on uranium dioxide, OR dioxide particles and nuclear fuel. This coating is usually formed by superheated chemicalvapor formation in a fluidized-bed reactor. The material has excellent emissivity at high temperatures and high current capacities, which makes it ideal for use in thermo-photoelectric heaters, field emitter tips, and arrays.

Concrete tools

These cemented carbide compound can be used to drill and make other tools with wear resistance because of their hardness. Zirconium carbide, also known as ZrC (zirconium carbide), is a highly-strengthening high-temperature material that has high melting points and excellent corrosion resistance. This material can be strengthened and resistant to corrosion by using cemented carbide.

Nanostructured parts

Zirconium carbide nanoparticles may be used in the metalurgical, chemical, or aerospace industries. The textile industry can use it to produce nylon, fiber, and carbide thermostatic fabrics. They are also used to create composites for metal substrates and ceramics.

Transport and packing of Zirconium Carbide Nanoparticles Nano ZrC Pulp:

There are many options for packing, which all depend on the quantity of zirconium nanoparticles.

Zirconium carbide nanoparticles packing:

You can vacuum pack 1kg/bag, 25kg/barrel or according to your requirements.
