Applications for Boron Carbide Powder

Boron carbide powder is widely used in nuclear energetic as the basic material for bars manufacturing, regulating the flow of nuclear reactions because of the containing of in its composition nucleus of 10B boron isotope with big profile

  • Nuclear: Neutron absorbing products for nuclear technology.

Boron carbide powder is a high performance material with chemical resistance and hardness similar to diamond. It is one of the most versatile materials and is also among the best for the following applications:

  • Abrasives: Grinding, lapping and polishing. Media for wafer slicing machines.
  • Ceramics: Hot pressing and sintering of hard, super lightweight high performance abrasion resistant ceramic parts and ceramic armor plates.
  • Nuclear: Neutron absorbing products for nuclear technology.
  • Refractory: Anti-oxygen component for silicon carbide ceramic and refractory products.
  • Steel: Modification component for its boron content.

We are a company that strives to meet your toughest needs by achieving accuracy and providing high quality products and excellent responsive service. Let us meet your boron carbide hot press and Boron carbide powder B4C needs.
