Overview of Boron Carbide powder Boron carbide It is low in density and strong, has good high temperature stability, chemical stability, as well as good strength. It is therefore widely used in wear-resistant material, ceramic reinforcement phases and lightweight armor. Boron carbide has a lower cost of production than diamond and cubic-boron nitride. This makes it more popular. It is sometimes used in place of expensive diamonds for polishing and grinding, drilling, etc.
B4C powder features high purity, low particle size distribution and a large specific surface area. B4C powder can be described as a synthetic superhard materials with a hardness level of 9.46, a microhardness range of 56-6200Kg/mm2, an average of 252g/cm3, a melting point at 2250 degrees Celsius and a ratio of 2.52g/cm3.
Non-magnetic chemical properties, high temperature and low resistance, strong acid, strong pH. Boron carbide has the ability to absorb neutrons, emits no harmful radiation and is not subject to secondary radiation pollution. It is less hard than diamond. Boron carbide, one of the most stable acids, is stable in all concentrated and dilute acid solutions. Boron carbonide is stable below 800°C in an ambient air environment. The boron dioxide, which is the result of oxidation at high temperatures, is lost in gas phase. This makes it unstable and can then be oxidized into carbon dioxide and/or boron trioxide.
Boron carbide absorbs a lot of neutrons and does not form radioactive isotopes. It is a great neutron absorber for nuclear power stations. It is used to control nuclear fission’s rate. Nuclear reactors use Boron carbide. Made into rods that can be controlled but also made into powder.

What are the potential applications Boron Carbide powder?
Control nuclear fission by it: It can absorb large amounts of neutrons, without forming radioactive isotopes. It is an excellent neutron absorber in nuclear power plants. It is mainly used to control the rate at which nuclear fission takes place. The majority of Boron is made into controllable rods for nuclear reactors. However, the surface area increases can sometimes make it into powder.
Abrasive: Boron Carbide has been used for many years as a coarse abrasive. The powder is extremely hard to form into artificial products because of its high melting points, but it can be melted into simple shapes. It can withstand high temperatures. Useful for polishing, grinding, drilling, and grinding hard materials, such as gems and cemented carbide.
Boron carbide is also a coating paint that can be used on warships and helicopters. It is light-weight and resistant to armor-piercing bullets. The hot-press coating forms an overall defense layer.
Nozzle: Boron carbide can be used to make a spray gun nozzle for the ordnance business. Boron carbide is very hard and wear-resistant. It does not react to acid or alkali and can withstand high pressure and high temperatures. Boron carbide is used to make metalborides, smelt boron and boron alloys, special welding and other purposes.
