What’s the purpose of titanium carbide?
TiC is a hard (Mohs 9 to 9.5) ceramic material similar in appearance to tungsten carbide. This material appears as a powdery black with the face-centered cubic sodium chloride structure.
This is a rare form of the mineral khamrabaevite that occurs naturally. It was discovered on Mount Arashan (modern Kyrgyzstan), in the Chatkal district, USSR. Ibragim Khmrabaevich Chamrabaevich Khamrabaevich Khamrabaev was the mineral’s director at Geology and Geophysics in Tashkent. The crystals are approximately the same size as natural ones, ranging from 0.1 to 3mm.
The titanium carbide can also be used in nickel-cobalt matrix ceramic to make tools bits that are not tungsten. This increases the precision, cutting speed and smoothness.
Add 6-30% to tungsten carbide to increase its resistance to wear and corrosion. This creates a stronger solution, which is less brittle and more susceptible to breaking.
You can etch titanium carbonide with reactive-ion engraving.
Is titanium carbide made of
TiC titanium carbide, hard crystal powder is composed of titanium dioxide (carbon black) and heat resistant parts.
TiC powder for application of titanium carbide
It is commonly used for making cermets. Cermets can be used to quickly machine high-speed steel materials. This surface treatment is abrasion resistant and can be applied to metal parts such as watch mechanisms or tool bits. For atmospheric reentry, titanium carbide can also be used as heat shielding.
Used as an additive in cutting tools and preparation of metal bismuth.
Use titanium carbide as an additif for metal bismuth melting bismuth or zinc cutting tools, preparation of semiconductor wear-resistant films, large-capacity HDD memories device, and other important uses.
The hydrogen storage breakthrough is possible with the nanotech approach to titanium carbide.
China has just released new research that promises to improve the efficiency and sustainability of hydrogen storage. At a time when low carbon collection of this omnipresent gas could be a pathway to greener energy, it is being promoted as an option.
Nature Nanotechnology publishes this week’s research on a method that uses a titanium carbide alloy as a medium. It produces a “nano pumps” effect to store hydrogen. Comparable methods are less effective than the process described.
Hydrogen has been gaining interest in its potential as a renewable fuel. There are already fuel-cell cars on the market. The tiny molecules of hydrogen make storage difficult, despite some breakthroughs being made. Register readers pointed out this fact quickly.
Jianglan Shui (School of Materials Science and Engineering), Beihang University and his colleagues found that titanium carbide materials (technically called Ti2CTx – a type of MXene – could hold 8.8wt% of hydrogen ratio at a pressure of 60 bars. This is considered “relatively safely”
According to the paper, Ti2CTx outperforms all other room-temperature storage materials for hydrogen storage. This is nearly twice as much storage capacity at the same pressure.
The hydrogen release is rapid and manageable. This makes it an attractive strategy to design practical hydrogen storage material.
