What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC?
Zirconium carbide (ZrC), a dark gray cubic cristal with a metallic luster, is readily available. Crispy. The melting point is 3532. The boiling point at 5100 is 3532. The density is 6.73 g/cm3. Mohs’ hardness is between 8 and 9. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid and cold water. Insoluble in hydrofluoric Acid as well as hot concentrated sulfuric Acid that contains nitric or hydrogen peroxide. It is strongly reacted with chlorine in high temperatures, forming zirconium tricholoride. Zirconia results from the burning of air at 700 degrees. ZrC does not react with water.
Zirconium carbide is a kind of material with a high melting point with great hardness and outstanding high temperature Refractory. It is used for solid propellants in rocket motors. It is utilized in the manufacture of alloy steel. It can also be used to make zirconium tetrachloride as well as zirconium.
What exactly is Zirconium Carbide ZrC used for?
Fire-resistant coatings that are resistant to fire can be applied to nuclear reactors using zirconium or niobium that is free of hafnium. Because of its weak susceptibility to radiation damage, and its the low absorption of neutrons, it can be used to coat nuclear fuels such as uranium dioxide and thorium dioxide particles. The coating is usually applied using thermal chemicalvapor deposition on a fluidized bed reactor. It also has high emissivity and a high capacity for current at high temperatures, which makes it an ideal material for thermal photovoltaic radiators as well as field emitter tips and arrays.
It can also be used as an abrasive and the cladding material, cermets incandescent filaments, or cutting tools.
Are zirconium-carbide ZrC a Ceramic Material?
Zirconium carbide is a very robust refractory ceramic material.
It is highly resistant to corrosion. This IV interstitial, transition metal carbide can also be used as a component of ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs). Due to the strong covalent ZrC bond the material has a high melting temperature ( 3530degC), high module ( 440GPa) and an extremely degree of hardness (25GPa).
Zirconium Carbide ZrC Melting Point
The melting point (or temperature) of zirconium caride is 3532 degrees Celsius (or 6390 degrees Fahrenheit).
Zirconium Carbide ZrC Thermal Conductivity.
ZrC’s thermal conductivity of 20.5W/m*K and electrical conductivity is (resistivity 43mOcm).
