Silicon Boride Powder: Introduction
This lightweight ceramic compound is also known as “boron silicide”, and it’s made from silicon and boron. Silicon triboride is one of the most common types.
The glossy, gray-colored powder of silicon hexaboride is known as hexaboron siliicide. SiB6 is its chemical formula. The molecular weight of SiB6 is 92.95. It has a relative density of 2.47g/cm3. The melting point is 2200. Hardness ranges between ruby or diamond. It can conduct electricity. It is not soluble in water. It can be heated with chlorine or water vapor to oxidize the surface.
Silicon Boride powder’s physicochemical properties
SiB6 crystal structure includes interconnected icosahedrons, polyhedrons that have 20 faces and 26 faces respectively, and an isolated silicon and/or boron atom.
It’s insoluble in water. This material is extremely strong and stable under extreme temperatures. This carbide has higher grinding efficiency that boron.
SiB6 reacts with oxygen, heat, or air to cause surface oxidation. SiB6 can then be eroded by heating sulfuric acid, bromine, fluorine, chlor, and boiling. The electrical conductivity of Borides is high. Hexamborides possess a low thermal expansion coefficient, and a high thermal neutron crossing-section.
