What is boron caride? Boron Carbide powder is part of the trigonal Crystal System. Unit cell contains 12 B and 3 C elements. C atoms within a unit cell are connected in a stereo diagonal arrangement. This configuration can be changed by B atoms. B4C’s molecular mass is 52.25. C21.74% and B78.25%. B4C can be found in a range of colors, including gray to black. The powder also has a high grind efficiency, with 60-70% of SiC and 1-2 times the grinding efficiency for corundum. B4C powder melts at 2450°C (decomposition). The coefficient of expansion for 1000°C at 4.510-6°C-1 is At 100°C, the thermal conductivity of B4C is 121.4W/mk and at 700°C it is 62.79W/mk. Hot-pressed products made from B4C are heat-resistant and wear-resistant. B4C can be used in the refractory industries as an additive. For example, it is added to carbon-bonded materials to act an antioxidant. A body with unshaped materials has a higher strength and greater resistance to corrosion.

Synthesis of Boron carbide

and its typical properties

To synthesize B4C powder, the common technique is to combine boron anhydride and excess carbon.


You can either use an electric arc furnace or a muffle oven to perform the reaction. The resistance furnace can synthesize B4C by heating the mixture B2O3-carbon C at a temperature below B4C. (occasionally containing Free B 1 %-2%) is another better method. B4C is also synthesized using an electric arc furnace. Because the arc temperature can be quite high, the B4C powder will decompose into a carbon-rich phase at approximately 2200. The quality of B4C produced is affected by the volatilization of some of its components, which can result in a high level of C (20%-30%). Boric acid, artificial graphite, fixed carbon greater that 95%) and petroleum ke (fixed carbon higher than 85% are all used in the production of B4C. About 2% is the theoretical amount. 50 percent of the total carbon addition amount comes from petroleum coke and artificial graphite. This is about 3%-4% higher than the theoretical value. By reducing or carbonizing the furnace between 1700 and 2300, the three ingredients can be mixed together in a mill. To obtain different particle sizes of B4C, the frit must be separated, dried, and then crushed. TRUNNANO is also known as. Luoyang Tongrun Nano Technology Co.
