Introduction to the Application of Titanium Carbide (TiC)
Overview of Titanium Carbide TiC Powder
The chemical formula of titanium carbide is TiC. It is a steel grey crystal with a metallic sheen. It is thermally and electrically conductive, and its electrical conductivity decreases with increasing temperature, thus taking on the properties of a medal. It is a hard, high-melting compound, second only to diamond in hardness, with a microhardness of 2850 kg/mm2. The lattice constant a=4.173×10-8cm. The melting point is 3150 ℃, the boiling point is 4820 ℃, and the relative density is 4.9. TiN and TiO have the same lattice and the same parameters, so a series of continuous solid solutions can be formed between them. Heating above 1500 °C in H2 gas, C removal occurs gradually. The mixture of Ti(C,N) carbon nitride reacts with N2 gas above 1200 ℃ to form a variable composition. The oxidation rate of TiC is slow at 800 °C, but TiC powder can be combusted in O2 at 600 °C to generate TiO2 and CO2. At 1200 °C, it reacts with O2 gas to generate TiO2 and CO. It does not interact with water, but can react with water vapor to generate TiO2, CO and H2 at temperatures above 700 °C. Does not react with CO, but reacts with CO2 at 1200 °C to generate TiO2 and CO. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid and lye, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia.
Application of Titanium Carbide TiC Powder
1. It is used in the fields of cutting tools, wear-resistant coatings, mold manufacturing, etc.;
2. Raw materials for powder metallurgy production of ceramics and hard metallurgy parts, such as wire drawing films, hard alloy molds, etc. Multiphase ceramics can be used in hard cutting tools, military armor materials, aerospace components such as gas storage tanks, engines in nuclear reactors, nozzle liners, turbine rotors, blades and structural components;
3. As a coating material, it can be used for diamond coating, fusion reactor anti-tritium coating, electrical contact coating, excavator tool coating, as well as foam ceramics, infrared radiation ceramics, etc.
