Titanium carbide nanoparticle Properties

Titanium carbide is a compound of titanium and carbon. Titanium carbide is characterized by high hardness, up to 9-9.5 (Mohs scale). Titanium carbide is a very hard refractory ceramic material, similar to tungsten carbide.
Titanium carbide chemical formula is TiC, molecular weight is 59.89. Gray metallic face-centered cubic lattice solid. The melting point is 3140 ±90 ℃, the boiling point is 4820 ℃ and the relative density is 4.93. The hardness is greater than 9. Insoluble in water, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia. It is stable to air when it is lower than 800C, eroded by air when it is higher than 2000 ℃, and can react with pure O2 at 1150C. Uses: making cemented carbide, also used as electrode and abrasive for arc lamp.

Titanium carbide nanoparticle
The size of titanium carbide nanoparticles is less than 100nm. Titanium carbide nanoparticles are light brown to dark brown or black powdery substances. When not mixed with other substances, titanium carbide nanoparticles have a very good pure shape and feel very slippery. Titanium carbide nanoparticles are almost insoluble in water, very stable in the presence of acids and oxidants, but soluble in the mixture of nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid. At very high temperatures (>1000℃), it reacts with air to form titanium dioxide and tin.
Nano titanium carbide has the characteristics of high purity, good wear resistance, narrow particle size distribution, and large specific surface area. In addition, the product also has good electrical conductivity. Titanium carbide nanoparticles are mainly used as coating materials for drills, tools, saw blades and so on.

Titanium carbide nanoparticles Properties:
Titanium carbide nanoparticles are very hard and, when combined with their lubrication properties, make them an attractive material for coated bits. If the tool head does not contain tungsten, it can be made of titanium carbide nanoparticles in the metal nickel-cobalt matrix. This will improve the cutting speed of the tool, as well as the accuracy of the tool and the smoothness of the workpiece.
Due to the extremely high hardness of TiC, especially in the metal forming of thick plates, there has been a significant improvement. CVD coating technology ensures that tools with less stringent dimensional accuracy have the highest bonding strength and wear resistance. After the coating, the high gloss polishing of the functional surface ensures the antifriction and lifting of the film surface.
Because of its high hardness and wear resistance, it is an ideal choice for tools such as moulds, punches and milling cutters. In other natural carbides, titanium carbide is important because of its inherent strength. This force is generated because of the arrangement of solid molecules.
Lubrication performance
The potential of titanium carbide nanoparticles as lubricants has been tested (using atomic force microscopy on a microscopic scale) to compare their tribological properties with titanium nitride and vinyl chloride. Among the three, the friction response of titanium carbide nanoparticles is the lowest. Regardless of the shape and composition of the tip used in the test, its lubrication performance is better than that of other substances. Other substances also show a strong dependence on the docking components that titanium carbide lacks.
