Product Characteristics and Application field
Structural ceramics products of boron carbide and silicon carbide have much eximious qualities，Bearing high temperature : Melting point is about 2450°；Bearing high pressure: Bending strength is yond 400Mpa；High hardness: Micro hardness of Boron carbide is more than 3500kgf/mm2; Micro hardness of Carborundum is more than 2300kgf/mm2 ，Has no chemical reaction with strong acid and alkali.B14 loses its neutron that it has a big section to get more thermal neutron. According to this point it has good ability to absorb neutron and resist eradiation.Because of their high hardness and strength, excellent wear and corrosion, low density, low friction coefficient good self-lubricate and high temperature properties both silicon carbide and boron carbide components have been widely used in many industries.Some of the applications are listed below: Sand blasting nozzle, mechanical seal, wire drawing mould, neutron absorption block, bulletproof vest, armor plate, measuring clap. Boron carbide powder is grinding efficiently. Due to this quality, it is used as a grinding medium in the grinding and polishing of gem, ceramic, machinery cutter, bearing, hard alloy and other hard materials. It applies for refractory materials due to its quality of antioxidation and bearing high temperature. Because of boron carbide good chemical resistance, it used to produce other boron containing materials such as titanium boride or zirconium boride.
