We are professional for providing boron carbide ceramic solutions in shanghai in china.
Boron carbide commonly known as man-made diamond, is a kind of very high hardness boride.Boron Carbide Ceramics is very light technical ceramic material (about 2.5 g/cm3) as well as the hardest (be next only to diamond).Boron carbide is more stiffer and more hard than silicon carbide or tungsten carbide
Boron carbide, B4C, is one of the hardest materials in the world, ranking third behind diamond and cubic boron nitride, and it is the hardest material produced in tonnage quantities. Discovered as a byproduct in the production of metal borides during the 19th century, it is produced by reacting carbon with B2O3 in an electric arc furnace through carbo-thermal reduction or gas phase reactions. Boron carbide must be milled and purified to remove metal impurities prior to commercial use.
Boron carbide, the molecular formula B4C, usually of black powder. Commonly known as man-made diamond, is a kind of very high hardness boride. And acid, alkali solution can not react, easy to manufacture and relatively cheap price. Widely used in hard material grinding, grinding, drilling and other.Mohs hardness is 9.3.
It is widely used in ballistic armor systems, Nozzles,Seal ring, Shaft sleeve, Nuclear Industry Materials,Grinding Materials,wear resistant lining and so on.Also we can make according to your requirement.
