Titanium carbide has the chemical formula TiC . Titanium carbide has steel gray crystals with metallic luster, which has thermal and electrical conductivity, and its electrical conductivity decreases with increasing temperature, so it exhibits metallicity.

Titanium Carbide Powder Properties

Titanium carbide is a very hard compound with a high melting point. Its hardness is second only to diamond and it has weak magnetic properties. Titanium carbide is insoluble in water, but soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia.

Titanium carbide is stable to air when it is lower than 800°C, it is corroded by air when it is higher than 2000°C, and can react with pure O2 at 1150°C. Titanium carbide has the same crystal lattice and the same parameters as TiN and TiO, so it can form a series of continuous solid solutions with each other.

Titanium Carbide Powder Applications

Titanium carbide has a very wide range of applications. With the further improvement and industrialization of the microwave synthesis of nano-TiC powder technology, the performance of using nano-TiC powder to prepare corresponding materials will be greatly improved and improved, with attractive prospects and broad applications.

1. Application of titanium carbide in multiphase materials
Titanium carbide ceramics are super hard tool materials, TiC and TiN, WC, A12O and other raw materials are made into various composite ceramic materials. These materials have high melting point, high hardness, and excellent chemical stability, they are the preferred materials for cutting tools and wear-resistant parts. At the same time, they have excellent electrical conductivity, it is also the preferred material for the electrode.

2. Titanium carbide is used as coating material
Titanium carbide can be used as diamond coating, anti-tritium coating in fusion reactor, electrical contact material coating, roadheader pick coating, and depositing a layer of titanium carbide on the tool can increase the service life of the tool by 3-5 Times.

3. Titanium carbide is used to prepare foam ceramics
As a filter, ceramic foam can effectively remove the inclusions in various fluids, its filtering mechanism is agitation and adsorption. Titanium carbide foam ceramics have higher strength, hardness, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, heat and corrosion resistance than oxide foam ceramics.

4. Titanium carbide is used in infrared radiation ceramic materials
Titanium carbide is an intermetallic compound, which usually shows good chemical stability and does not change in valence state, which is beneficial to the application in the high temperature field.
