Boron Carbide B4C is one of the hardest materials known, ranking third behind diamond and cubic boron nitride. It is the hardest material produced in tonnage quantities. Originally discovered in mid 19th century as a by-product in the production of metal borides, boron carbide was only studied in detail since 1930.
