B4C flakes- ultrathin Boron carbide

The company uses mature boron carbide ceramic manufacturing technology and ceramic processing technology to produce boron carbide thin sheets in large quantities. At present, the thickness of B4C flakes can reach 0.2mm.

    Product Details

    B4C is a very important ceramic material widely used in civil, aerospace and military fields. Its exceptional hardness, second only to diamond and cubic boron nitride, sets it apart. In addition, it has low density, high melting point, good chemical stability, excellent neutron absorption capabilities and impressive thermoelectric properties. Due to these properties, B4C is used in the production of ballistic armor, cutting tools, acid and alkali resistant materials, thermocouples, and atomic reactor control and shielding materials. In addition, due to its excellent properties, researchers have also begun research on boron carbide coatings.

    As an ultra-thin material with stable quality and uniform thickness, boron carbide has the potential for a wide range of applications in neutron detection, making it an ideal material for this purpose.

    The company uses two methods of producing ceramics, atmospheric pressure sintering and hot press sintering. Each method has unique advantages and is suitable for specific applications. Pressureless sintering produces cost-effective ceramics suitable for mass production, ideal for ballistics, seals, nozzles, wear-resistant and temperature-resistant materials, and common nuclear power applications. On the other hand, ceramics produced by hot-pressing sintering are very suitable for small-scale production, can be manufactured in larger sizes, and are most suitable for nuclear power core materials, semiconductor materials, target materials, and bulletproof materials.
