What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC exactly?
Zirconium Boride (ZrC), dark gray cubic crystal is characterized by a metallic luster. Crispy. The melting temperature is 3532. The boiling point is 5100. The density is 6.73g/cm3. Mohs is a range of hardness ranging from 8 to 9. Insoluble when used with cold water or hydrochloric Acid. It’s soluble in hydrofluoric as well as hot concentrated sulfuric acids containing nitric or hydrogen peroxide. It reacts in extreme temperatures with chlorine to create zirconium Tetrachloride. Zirconia is formed by burning in the air at 700 degrees Celsius. ZrC is inert when mixed with water.
Zirconium carbonide is a high-melting point material that has great hardness and excellent high temperature Refractory. It is used as a raw material for solid propellant in rocket motors. It is used to produce alloy steel. It is used in the production of zirconium and alloy steel.
What is the purpose of Zirconium Carbide ZrC?
Niobium carbonide can be used as well as hafnium-free zirconium carbonide as fire-resistant materials for nuclear reactors. Because of its low cross-section of neutron absorption and weak radiation sensitivity, it can be used as a coating for nuclear fuel such as thorium dioxide and uranium dioxide particles. The coating is usually applied by thermal chemicalvapor deposition to a fluidized bed reactor. It also has a high emissivity even at very high temperatures. This makes it a good material for photovoltaic thermal radiation as well as field emitter tips.
It can also be used to make abrasive, cladding, and cermets, as well as incandescent filaments and cutting tools.
Are zirconium-carbide ZrC a ceramic material?
Zirconium carbid is a tough, refractory ceramic substance.
It has high corrosion resistance. This IV interstitial transmetal carbide is also a member the ultra-high-temperature ceramics. The material has a strong Zr–C covalent link that provides it with a high melting point ( 3530degC), high modularity ( 440GPa), hardness (30GPa).
