What are the properties of zirconium caride?
The zirconium carbonide dust is gray-black. It has a NaCI-type cubic, face-centered structure and the lattice consistency is 0.4685nm. Zirconium carbide is electrically conductive, conductive, paramagnetic. ZrC powder is also known for its high melting point and hardness.
Zirconium caride can be insoluble or soluble with water. The temperature at which the oxidation reactions begin is 300°C.
Zirconium carbonide ceramic is an extremely hard material that exhibits good chemical stability. It also has good resistance to high temperatures, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. It’s a great high temperature structural material, super-hard tool material, and surface protection material. Because it is thermally conductive, its potential applications include cutting tool materials, armor material, hardfacing electrodes, and other hardfacing materials.
Where is zirconium carbonide applied?
Zirconium-carbide used in cemented caride
Zirconium carbide is an important, high-temperature structural metal with high melting points and high strength. This material has many applications in cemented carbide due to its excellent properties.
Zirconium carbonide for ceramic composite materials
The strengthening phase zirconium carbonide is used to prevent dislocations from moving or stabilise grain boundaries. Additionally, it limits the slip or climbing movable dislocations. This material has many potential applications.
Zirconium Caride is used in high-temperature coating
Zirconium carbid has an extremely high melting point, and it forms dense oxide layers on the surface at very high temperatures. This can reduce the diffusion rate for oxygen into the matrix, and thus can be used as thermal insulation and high-temperature coating.
Zirconium carbonide is used for nuclear materials-barrier material to cover nuclear fuel particle
SiC coated fuel particles are commonly used in the atomic industry. But, SiC coverings will become thermally decomposed at temperatures above 1700. A phase transition between SiC and SiC will take place and it will quickly lose its mechanical properties.
Zirconium cadmium for functional materials
Zirconium carbid has both the ability to absorb visible light efficiently and reflect infrared. By absorbing 95% sunlight below 2m in short wavelength energy, thermal conversion can store the energy. It also has the property of reflecting infrared wavelengths beyond 2m.
