What is boion carbide

Boron carbide, alias black diamond, formula for B4C is usually colored powder.It's one of the three hardest materials known, The other two are diamond and cubic boron nitride. Its melting point is 2350 ℃, boiling point > 3500℃. Boron carbide doesn’t react with acid or alkali solution, has high chemical potential, neutron absorption, wear resistance and semiconductor conductivity.

Application of boron carbide

B4C is widely used in refractories, engineering ceramics, nuclear industry, aerospace and other fields because of its high melting point, high hardness, low density and good neutron absorption and chemical erosion resistance. The most important performance of boron carbide lies in its extraordinary Indian (Mott hardness is 9.3, micro-hardness is 55GP-67GPA), which is the most ideal high temperature wear resistant material.Boron carbide is the lightest ceramic material with very low density and can be used in aerospace field.Compared with pure elements B and Cd, boron carbide has a strong neutron absorption capacity and is widely used in nuclear industry due to its low cost, good corrosion resistance and good thermal stability.
The market prospect of boron carbide
High-quality boron carbide raw materials and sandblasting nozzle, special sealing ring, bulletproof sheet, bulletproof armor and other boron carbide products are the best-selling products in the international market, with the market demand of billions of yuan.Future nuclear power industry in China will have greater development, in order to meet the increasingly tight lack of demand for electricity in our country, the other by tsinghua university in the research of high temperature gas cooled reactor experiment (HTGR, HTR - 10) has been listed in the law of the People's Republic of China on the national economic and social development of the eleventh five-year plan compendium, plan implementation during the "11th five-year plan" 200000 kilowatt modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactor (MHTGR, HTR - PM) technology commercialization, the construction of each of the type of gas cooled reactor will require boron carbide rod, shielding materials such as ceramic parts as many as 70000 pieces, worth tens of millions of yuan,Other types of nuclear reactors have similar needs, so the social and economic benefits are considerable. TRUNNANO (aka. Luoyang Tongrun Nano Technology Co. Ltd.) is a trusted global chemical material supplier & manufacturer with over 12 years experience in providing super high quality chemicals and Nano materials. The boron carbide produced by our company has high purity, fine particle size and impurity content. Lower, please contact us if necessary.
