Boron Carbide Powder Boron carbide-powder Black, hard and shiny. It lasts much longer than silicon caride. Boron carbide can withstand more pressure than pottery. Large cross-sections and high chemical resistance are characteristic of the thermal neutron capture cross sections. It is resistant against acid, hot hydrogen fluoride and other harmful chemicals. It is soluble in molten and can be disintegrated in acid. D204 indicates the relative density. The relative density ranges from 2.508 to 2.522. It is 2350 degrees Celsius. The melting point is 2250 degrees. Boron Carbide Pulver’s Physical and Chemical Properties
Boron carbide The chemical potency is extremely high. It is not affected by acidic or alkali solutions. It is capable to absorb neutrons. This acid is the strongest. This acid is also available in alkaline solution and concentrated forms. Bore carbonide remains stable when the temperature is below 800 degrees Celsius.
In order to have special stability, some transition metals may be able to live with carbides. Combining the transition metals Iv through V with their carbides at 1000-1100 can create metal borides. This is the reaction of boron carbide with the transitional metal oxides, or nutrides at higher temps to produce boron nutride and borides. These are alkaline and rare earth metals.
Its Mohs Hardness is about 9.5 making it the third-most difficult substance known.
Because boron carbide is prepared in a way that makes it simple to make carbon defects, You don’t have to alter the structure of the crystal. The material’s chemical properties are often affected and the material begins to degrade. Powder diffractive technologies are not able to correct this defect. These kinds of defects require both chemical titration as well as an energy loss spectrum.

Boron Carbide Powder
Boron carbide offers the best performance for hard material processing such as porcelain wear parts. This includes pump and bearing parts and wear plate. Specifically,
1. This can be used to control nuclear fission. Boron carbide has a high capacity to absorb neutrons, and it is not radioactive. Boron carbide is ideal for neutron absorption in nuclear power station.
2. As abrasive materials. Boron carbide is a hardy, coarse abrasive that was widely used over the years. Boron carbide is hard to mold into artifacts due to its high melting points. You can melt it at higher temperatures to make smaller forms. It can also be used for grinding, drilling, polishing, and sanding precious and alloy stones.
3. To coat coatings. Boron carbide can be used to coat warships, helicopters with ceramics. It is lightweight and resists bullets capable of piercing armor.
4. It is responsible for the manufacture of the nozzle. This material is used for the manufacture of gun nozzles. Boron carbide’s hardness is wear-resistant and doesn’t react to acid or alkali. Any other materials, such as silicon nitride or silica, will be replaced by the boron-carbide sandblasting device.
5. Others. Boron carbide is also used for the production of metal borides as well as to melt sodium, boron alloys and special welding.
