Boride Powder

Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder CAS 12007-99-7

Item No.: Tr-CaB6
Calcium boride is a boron-containing additive used as refractory material for dolomite charcoal and magnesium dolomite charcoal for oxidation resistance, erosion resistance and thermal strength improvement.
Purity: 99.5%
Particle Size: -325 mesh
Calcium Hexaboride Properties
Product Performance of Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder:
Calcium boride has the characteristics of high melting point and high hardness. Its physical and chemical properties are quite stable. When calcined in air, sub-micron CaB6 will only gain weight after 800 degrees Celsius and is not easy to oxidize. CaB6 is generally insoluble in hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid, so technically to remove impurity materials by hot hydrochloric acid, but CaB6 is soluble in nitric acid.

Application of Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder:

1. Used as a boron-containing additive for dolomite charcoal and magnesium dolomite charcoal refractories to resist oxidation, erosion and improve the thermal strength.
2. Used as a deoxidizing and degassing agent for highly conductive red copper to improve conductivity and strength.
3. Used as a new type of material for preventing neutrons in the nuclear industry.
4. Used as a new type of semiconductor material in spin electronic components with a temperature of 900K.
5. Used as a raw material for manufacturing boron trichloride (BCl3) and amorphous boron.
6. Used as a raw material for manufacturing high-purity metal borides (TiB2, ZrB2, HfB2, etc.) and high-purity boron alloys (Ni-B, Co-B, Cu-B, etc.).
7. Used to manufacture a mixture of catalyst containing calcium-boron nitride (Ca3B2N4) and hexagonal boron nitride, and to produce crystal cubic boron nitride with excellent performance.

Storage Condition of Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder:
Damp reunion will affect CaB6 powder dispersion performance and using effects, therefore, calcium hexaboride CaB6 powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in cool and dry room, the calcium hexaboride can not be exposure to air. In addition, the CaB6 powder should be avoided under stress.

Packing & Shipping of Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder:
We have many different kinds of packing which depends on the calcium hexaboride CaB6 powder quantity.
Calcium hexaboride CaB6 powder packing: vacuum packing, 1kg/bag, 25kg/barrel, or as your request.
Calcium hexaboride CaB6 powder shipping: could be shipped out by sea , by air, by express as soon as possible once payment receipt.
