Download boron carbide sds boron carbide description. boron carbide, or b4c, is an extremely hard ceramic material discovered in 1899. boron carbide is smelted from boric acid and powdered carbon in electric furnace under high temperature. depending on hardness of 4950kgf/mm2, it is even harder than diamond and cubic boron nitride.
Typical applications. used in steel modification component with high boron content, grinding, lapping, polishing, hot pressing and sintering of hard and abrasion resistant parts with light weight, metallurgical refractories with high corrosion and oxygen resistance, moderators, blast nozzles, and nuclear technology reactor control rods.
Boron carbide is often used in nuclear applications such as shielding and other protective applications due to its ability to absorb neutrons. panadyne offers a nuclear grade enriched boron carbide with a high b10 content formulated for use in nuclear applications. the material is available in straight fepa sizes as well as custom sizes.
Boron carbide also known as black diamond, the formula is b4c, usually gray-black color. it is one of the three hardest known material (the other two are diamond, cubic boron nitride) f. or tanks armored vehicles, bullet-proof vests and products in many industrial applications. its mohs hardness of 9.3. other boron carbide ceramic type:
