About Boron Carbide B4C Carbide powder:
Boron carbide has the characteristics of low density, high strength, high temperature stability and good chemical stability. Therefore, it is widely used in wear-resistant materials, ceramic reinforcing phases, especially in lightweight armor, reactor neutron absorbers, etc. In addition, compared with diamond and cubic boron nitride, boron carbide is easy to manufacture and low cost, so it is more widely used. It can replace expensive diamonds in some places and is commonly used in grinding, grinding, drilling and other aspects.
Chemical properties, non-magnetic, resistant to high and low temperatures, strong acids and alkalis. The hardness is only less than the diamond. Boron carbide is one of the most stable substances to acid, and it is stable in all concentrated or dilutes acid or alkali aqueous solutions. Boron carbide is basically stable below 800°C in an air environment. The boron oxide formed by its oxidation at a higher temperature is lost in the gas phase, leading to its instability and oxidation to form carbon dioxide and boron trioxide.
In addition, boron carbide can effectively absorb neutrons without emitting gamma rays that are harmful to the human body, and it will not form secondary radiation pollution. Feel free to send an inquiry to get the latest price if you would like to buy Boron Carbide B4C Carbide Powder in bulk.

How is Boron Carbide B4C Carbide powder produced?
Boron Carbide B4C Carbide powder is produced by reducing boron oxide with carbon at high temperatures in an electric furnace. The carbothermic reduction method usually uses boric acid or boric anhydride as the raw material and carbon as the reducing agent. The high-temperature reduction reaction is carried out in an electric arc furnace. At present, the carbothermic reduction method is the main method for industrial production of boron carbide, which has the advantages of simple reaction and low cost. In addition, there are self-propagating thermal reduction methods, mechanochemical methods, direct synthesis methods, and sol-gel methods for preparing boron carbide.

Applications of Boron Carbide B4C Carbide powder:
Fine and advanced abrasive materials
Because of the high grinding efficiency of boron carbide, it is mainly used as a grinding medium in the grinding process of materials, such as: grinding, grinding, drilling and polishing of hard materials such as gems, ceramics, knives, bearings, and cemented carbides.
Industrial ceramic materials
Products made of boron carbide powder: sandblasting nozzles, sealing rings, nozzles, bearings, plungers of mud pumps, pestles and rocket launchers, ceramic coatings for warships, helicopters, etc., as a new type of material. It has the characteristics of high melting point, high hardness, high elastic modulus, strong wear resistance, and good self-lubricating properties and is widely used in sandblasting machinery, electronics, information, aerospace, automobile and other industries.
Shielding and control materials for the nuclear industry
Boron carbide material has a large thermal neutron capture section, excellent neutron absorption and radiation resistance, and is internationally recognized and recommended as a nuclear reactor control material and shielding material.
Bulletproof armor
Due to its high strength and small specific gravity, it is especially suitable for use in lightweight bulletproof armor, such as the protection of aircraft, vehicles, ships and human bodies.
Improve the life of mechanical parts
Combine boron carbide powder with metal to produce metal-based alloy powder. After special surface treatment of this material, the original mechanical parts are more resistant to wear and corrosion resistance to acid and alkali.
Special absorber provides energy
Boron carbide, also known as "black gold", is used as a power source in powder form as a solid fuel for the rocket.
Chemical industry additives
Due to its stable chemical properties, boron carbide does not react with acid and alkali solutions and has a high chemical potential, so it is widely used in the production of other boron-containing materials, such as zirconium boride and titanium boride.
Advanced refractories
Because of its anti-oxidation and high-temperature resistance, boron carbide is used as a high-grade shaped and unshaped refractory material and is widely used in various fields of metallurgy, such as steel stoves and kiln furniture.
