What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC? Zirconium Carbide is a dark grey cubic crystal with metallic shine. Crispy. The melting point is 3532. The boiling point of water is 5100. The density of the material is 6.73 g/cm3. Mohs’ hardness is between 8 and 9. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid and cold water. Hydrofluoric acid, hot concentrated sulfuric acid containing hydrogen peroxide and nitric acids are the best solvents. It reacts with chlorine at high temperatures to create zirconium trichloride. Zirconia is created by burning air at 700. ZrC is inert with water.

Zirconium carbonide is a high-melting point material that has high hardness, excellent high temperature resistance and great hardness. It is used to make solid propellant for rocket motors. Used in the production process of alloy steel. It is used in the production of alloy steel and zirconium.

What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC used for?
For nuclear reactors, fire-resistant coatings can be made from niobium and zirconium carbide. It is a good choice for coating nuclear fuel uranium dioxide and thorium dioxide. It is usually applied in a fluidized-bed reactor using thermal chemical vapor deposition. It has high emissivity, high current capacity, and is therefore a good material for thermal photovoltaic radiation and field emitter tips.
It can be used in abrasives and cladding as well as cermets and incandescent filaments.

Is Zirconium Carbide ZrC Ceramic?
Zirconium carbonide is a very tough refractory ceramic materials.
It is resistant to corrosion. This IV interstitial, transition metal carbide can also be a member in ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs). Because of the strong covalent ZrC bond, this material has a very high melting temperature ( 3530degC), high module ( 440GPa), and high hardness (25GPa).

Zirconium Carbide ZrC Melting Point
The melting point for zirconium carbonide is 3532°C (6390°F).

ZirconiumCarbide ZrC Thermo Conductivity.
ZrC has a thermal conductivity of 20.5W/m*K. It also has an electrical conductivity (resistivity) of 43mOcm.
