Boron Carbide has the highest hardness of any material. It is unaffected by hot hydrogen Fluoride, nor by nitric Acid. Insoluble in water or acid, but soluble in molten sodium alkali.
B4C powder MF: B4C
B4C powder CAS No: 12069-32-8
B4C powder EINECS No: 235-111-5
B4C powder Appearance: Grey black powder
B4C powder particle size: Can customized according to requirements.
Boron Carbide Properties:
Boron carbide has the formula B4C. Boron carbide crystals are hexagonal. Boron carburide density is 2.52g/cm3. Boron carbide has a melting point of 2450
Boron carburide hardness (B4C): Mohs hardness of 9.3; microhardness 55006700kg/mm2. Second only to hardest material cubic boron-nitride and diamond.
Boron carbide possesses low density, high strength and high temperature stability, as well as good chemical stability. Boron carbide is used widely in ceramic reinforcing phases, wear-resistant material, and lightweight armor.
ceramic boron carbide has a lower cost and is easier to manufacture than diamond or cubic boron. It is used more often. It can be used to replace expensive diamonds at certain places, and is also commonly used for grinding and drilling.
B4C powder is high-purity, has small particle sizes, and high surface specific area. B4C, on the other hand, is synthetic, ultra-rigid material, with a hardness of 9.46. It also has microhardnesses between 56-6200Kg/mm2; 252g/cm3, a proportion of 252g/cm3, a melting point at 2,250° Celsius.
Chemical properties, nonmagnetic, resistant at high and low temperature, to strong acids and bases. It can also absorb neutrons and emit gamma-rays, which are harmful to human health.

Boron carbide is a very stable substance in acid and alkali solutions. Boron carbide remains stable in an atmosphere below 800degC. The boron oxide formed from its oxidation is lost in gas phase.
How is Boron Carbide produced
Boron Carbide (B4C) Boride Powder is created by reducing carbon with boron at high temperatures using an electric furnace. After grinding the black powder, it is solidified through pressing at temperatures above 2,000degC. Its melting temperature is about 2,350degC.

The hexagonal shape is a good example of this.
Boron Carbide powder in other sizes: 500nm
Boron Carbide B4C Powder Uses:
Fine and Advanced Abrasive Materials
It is used in grinding processes for hard materials, including gems. ceramics. knives. bearings.
The following products are made from boron-carbide powder as a novel material: sandblasting nodes, seal rings, nozzles bearings plungers for mud pumps pestles rocket launchers ceramic coatings warships helicopters etc. It has high melting points, high hardness and high elastic modulus. It also has good wear resistance and self-lubricating qualities.
Materials for shielding and controlling the nuclear industry
Boron carbide is a highly regarded material that has been internationally recognized for its neutron absorption properties, thermal neutron capture, and radiation resistance.
Its high strength and low specific gravity make it ideal for the manufacture of lightweight bulletproof armour, which is used to protect aircrafts, vehicles, ships, and even human bodies.
Improve mechanical part life
Mix boron-carbide powder with metals to create metal-based alloy powder. After a special treatment, original mechanical components are more resistant to wear.
Special absorber provides energy
The solid fuel rocket uses a powdered form of boron carbide (also known as "black-gold") as its power source.
Because of its high chemical potential and stable chemical properties, it is widely used for the production other boron-containing material, such as titanium boride or zirconium.
It is widely used for steel stoves and kiln equipment because of its high-temperature resistance and antioxidation.
Storage condition of Boron Carbide powder B4C:
B4C Powder dispersion and use effects will be affected by damp reunion. Therefore, boron carbide B4C must be packed in vacuum and kept in a dry and cool room. In addition, boron carbide powder B4C must not be exposed to stress.
Shipping & Packing of Boron Carbide (B4C) powder:
The amount of B4C powder we use will determine the type of packaging.
Boron carbide powder packaging: vacuum packed, 100g,500g or 1kg/bag; 25kg/barrel.
Boron carbide B4C Powder Shipping: Could be shipped by air, sea, or express as quickly as possible after payment receipt.
