tin carbide is a layered ternary compound with Ti and Sn as the major elements. It is used in a variety of metalworking and electrical applications because of its high hardness, refractoriness and resistance to corrosion and wear.
tin carbide is available in numerous forms and custom shapes including Ingot, foil, rod, plate and sputtering target. It is typically shipped immediately and can be manufactured to customer specifications.
Typical Application for Carbide is for machine tool cutting and drilling. It can also be used as a refractory material.
In addition to machine tooling, carbides are also used in many other manufacturing processes and have wide-ranging industrial applications. From the medical industry to construction applications, the creation of common items and even the fabrication of fishing weights, this refractory material has many useful applications.
Carbide is a refractory material and can be recycled and reused to save costs. It is widely favored by industries that have high production rates and require a hard metal compound with low thermal expansion, high abrasiveness, and excellent durability.
There are several types of carbides, with ionic and interstitial compounds being the most common. Ionic carbides can be formed from transition metals by reducing them with carbon and a chemically inert base. The ionic compounds include calcium carbide (CaC2), silicon carbide (SiC), tungsten carbide (WC; often called simply carbide when used in machine tooling), and iron carbide (Fe3C).
Boron carbide (B4C) is another covalent carbon compound with a unique structure that includes icosahedral boron units linked by carbon atoms. Like silicon carbide, it is a refractory material and is important in industrial applications.
