Boron Carbide is one of the hardest man-made materials
available in commercial quantities that has a finite melting point low enough
to permit its relatively easy fabrication into shapes. Some of Boron Carbide’s
unique properties include: high hardness, chemical inertness, and a high
neutron absorbing cross section.
Carbide is well suited to a variety of industrial applications including:
for lapping and ultrasonic cutting
in carbon-bonded refractory mixes
applications such as reactor control rods and neutron absorbing shielding
parts such as blasting nozzles, wire-drawing dies, powdered metal and
ceramic forming dies, thread guides..
