Boron Carbide has been described as one of the hardest known materials. It is resistant to hot hydrogen fluoride, nitric acid and is therefore not susceptible to oxidation. Particle Size: -325mesh Purity: 99% Boron Carbide B4C powder: Boron carbide (chemical name B4C), is a covalent boron carbon material and extremely hard. It is usually found in gray-black micro powder. This material can be used for tank armor and bulletproof vests. Vickers hardness, which exceeds 30 GPa is one of three hardest known materials after diamond and cubic boron nitride. Boron carbide ranks third in the hardest substances, behind diamond and cubicboron nutride. It is therefore called “black diamond”. Boron carbide (about 9.5 to 9.75 inches on the Mohs Hardness Scale) is strong and extremely tough. This material is useful for absorbing neutrons and has an excellent shielding performance. Stability of most chemicals and radiation. Its Vickers hardness, elastic modulus and fracture toughness are very close to diamond’s (1385 GPa and 55.3 MPam1/2/2). Boron carbide semiconductors are electronic materials whose electronic properties can be dominated by jump type transmission. The order and composition determine how wide the energy band gap. With multiple intermediate bandgaps states complicating the spectrum, the bandgap can be estimated at 2.09eV. The typical material type is p. Boron carbide was first discovered as a side effect of the research into metal borides in the 19th Century. It was only scientifically explored until the 1930s. Boron carbide absorbs a lot of neutrons but does not make radioisotopes. It is therefore a great neutron absorber in nuclear power stations. Boron carbide can be made easily and is less expensive than diamond or cubic boron Nitride, making it more widespread. Boron Carbide B4C Powder is a great alternative to expensive diamonds.

Boron Carbide Powder B4C Boron oxide is reduced with carbon using high heats in an electric furnace. The carbothermic method uses either boric acid (or boric anhydride) as the raw material, and carbon to reduce the amount. An electric arc furnace is used to perform the high temperature reduction reaction. Carbothermic reduction is still the most popular method to industrially produce boron carbide. It has simple reactions and low production costs. Additionally, self-propagating heat reduction methods, mechanochemical and direct synthesis methods are available for the preparation of boron caride. Henri Moissan first synthesized Boron carbide back in 1899. The presence of carbon and magnesium allowed Boron Trioxide to be reduced in an electric furnace. For carbon, this reaction takes place at temperatures above the melting point B4C and results in large amounts of carbon monoxide being released. 2 B2O3 + 7 C→B4C + 6 CO If magnesium is present, it can be used in graphite crucibles. After the reaction, acid treatment can remove the magnesium by-product. Boron Carbide Powder B4C:
<0.01%Boron Carbide B4C powder: Boron carbide has low density, great strength, high temperature stability and excellent chemical stability. Wear-resistant materials include ceramic reinforcement phases, particularly in light decoration, and reactor neutron absorbers. High-quality and sophisticated abrasive material Due to its excellent grinding performance, boron carbide is used primarily in grinding of materials. This includes: Grinding, grinding and drilling of hard materials; such as, gems, ceramics., bearings. and cemented carbides. Industries ceramic materials Boron carbide powder products include sealing rings and sandblasting tools, bearings, seals, pistons of mud pumps and rocket launchers as well ceramic coatings that can be used to protect warships or helicopters. The material has high melting point and hardness as well as high elastic and wear resistance. This makes it a popular choice for sandblasting, electronic, aviation, car, and other industries. Materials for control and protection in the nuclear industry Boron carbide material is highly recommended because of its high thermal neutron capture and neutron absorption. It can also be used as an international shielding material or nuclear reactor control material. Bulletproof armor Because of its strength and low specific gravity it’s ideal for light bulletproof armor. It can protect aircraft, boats, and even human beings. Enhance the mechanical part’s life Combining boron-carbide powder and metal will produce a metal-based alloy powder. This material has been treated with special surfaces to make the original mechanical parts more durable to wear, corrosion resistance and acid/alkali resistance. Special absorber provides energy Boron carbide (also known as “black Gold”) is used to provide power in the form of a powdered fuel or solid fuel for rocket engines. Chemical industry additives Because of its chemical stability, boron caride doesn’t react with acids and alkali solutions. Also, it has a high potential for chemical reaction, making it a popular material in other boron-containing materials like titanium boride or zirconium borid. High-quality refractories Boron carbide’s anti-oxidation properties and resistance to high temperature are reasons why it is used widely in different fields of metallurgy such as steel stoves or kiln furniture. Boron Carbide Nanoparticles (B4C),Boron Carbide Nanopowder (B4C) Storage condition of Boron Carbide powder B4C powder: B4C powder dispersion performance will be affected and the use of B4C should not be compromised by damp reunion. Boron carbide B4C Powder must be kept dry and in vacuum packed. Additionally, boron carbonide B4C powder must be kept away from stress. Shipping and Packing of Boron Carbide Powder B4C powder: We offer many packing options, which depend on the amount of boron carbonide B4C powder.
