Boron carbide is one of the most stable substances to acid, and it is stable in all concentrated or dilutes acid or alkali aqueous solutions. Boron carbide is basically stable below 800°C in an air environment. The boron oxide formed by its oxidation at a higher temperature is lost in the gas phase, leading to its instability and oxidation to form carbon dioxide and boron trioxide.
How is Boron Carbide B4C Boride Powder produced?
Boron Carbide B4C Boride Powder is produced by reducing boron oxide with carbon at high temperatures in an electric furnace. After grinding, the black powder is solidified by pressing at temperatures exceeding 2,000°C (3,630°F). Its melting point is approximately 2,350°C (4,260°F).

Other size of Boron Carbide B4C powder: 500nm
Boron Carbide B4C Powder Uses:
Fine and advanced abrasive materials
Because of the high grinding efficiency of boron carbide, it is mainly used as a grinding medium in the grinding process of materials, such as: grinding, grinding, drilling and polishing of hard materials such as gems, ceramics, knives, bearings, and cemented carbides.
Industrial ceramic materials
Products made of boron carbide powder: sandblasting nozzles, sealing rings, nozzles, bearings, plungers of mud pumps, pestles and rocket launchers, ceramic coatings for warships, helicopters, etc., as a new type of material. It has the characteristics of high melting point, high hardness, high elastic modulus, strong wear resistance, and good self-lubricating properties and is widely used in sandblasting machinery, electronics, information, aerospace, automobile and other industries.
Shielding and control materials for the nuclear industry
Boron carbide material has a large thermal neutron capture section, excellent neutron absorption and radiation resistance, and is internationally recognized and recommended as a nuclear reactor control material and shielding material.
Due to its high strength and small specific gravity, it is especially suitable for use in lightweight bulletproof armor, such as the protection of aircraft, vehicles, ships and human bodies.
Improve the life of mechanical parts
Combine boron carbide powder with metal to produce metal-based alloy powder. After special surface treatment of this material, the original mechanical parts are more resistant to wear and corrosion resistance to acid and alkali.
Special absorber provides energy
Boron carbide, also known as "black gold", is used as a power source in powder form as a solid fuel for the rocket.
Chemical industry additives
Due to its stable chemical properties, boron carbide does not react with acid and alkali solutions and has a high chemical potential, so it is widely used in the production of other boron-containing materials, such as zirconium boride and titanium boride.
Because of its anti-oxidation and high-temperature resistance, boron carbide is used as a high-grade shaped and unshaped refractory material and is widely used in various fields of metallurgy, such as steel stoves and kiln furniture.

Boron Carbide Health & Safety Information
Southern Copper Corp (SCCO.N) recently said its Peruvian mine remained closed after a six-week standoff with protesters and blamed the Peruvian government for failing to intervene in the safety of its 1,300 workers and their families.
The company said in a statement that a recent agreement to end protests at the Cuajone mine required the company to withdraw complaints against protest leaders because railways transporting minerals and supplies remained blocked. Production has been suspended since the end of February.
Peru's Energy Ministry said in a separate statement that it had also reached an agreement with Southern Copper to start talks to find common ground with local communities.
"If we shut down for a year, the government will stop receiving more than 3.1 billion soles ($830 million) in taxes and royalties, and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be lost. This is what we want to avoid, "Southern Copper added in the statement.
Peru has faced a wave of protests from indigenous communities, who accuse mining companies of not providing enough jobs and funding to poor local residents.
Central bank officials said last week that protests against copper mines such as MMG's Las Bambas and Southern Copper's Cuajone were dragging down the economy.
Peru is the world's second-largest copper producer and mining is an important source of tax revenue for the country. It is estimated that the supply and prices of the boron carbide will be influenced by that.
