Boron carbide Typical Properties
Boron carbide Usage
The main preparation method of industrial boron carbide is produced by melting boric anhydride in an electric arc furnace to make it react with carbon. In addition, it can be obtained by carbon magnesium reduction method or hydrocarbon reduction method. Boron carbide is mainly used as an abrasive for the grinding and polishing industry.
Boron carbide is mainly used for grinding, grinding, drilling and polishing of hard materials such as cemented carbide and precious stones. Molded products can be used as anti-wear materials, refractory materials, used to manufacture hard corrosion-resistant ceramics and water-resistant bearings, also used for smelting boron steel, boron alloys and special welding. The alloy of boron carbide and aluminum (including B4C up to 50%) is used for neutron shielding, reaction furnace shielding, etc.
