Uses of titanium diboride
Due to its excellent electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance to molten metals, titanium diboride has become a material for making evaporation vessels, melting metal crucibles, aluminum electrolytic cell cathodes, spark plugs, and other electrodes and contact tips. The hardness of titanium diboride (second only to diamond and cubic boron nitride) and its excellent high-temperature properties make it suitable for manufacturing wear-resistant components, cutting tools, molds, nozzles, and seals that work in high-temperature and harsh environments. In addition, plating titanium diboride on the surface of these devices can increase their wear resistance and service life. The low density of titanium diboride and other excellent properties make it a good armament material. Titanium diboride can be used as a grain refining and particle strengthening additive in aluminum-based, copper-based titanium aluminum alloys, and iron-based materials, significantly improving materials' mechanical, physical, and chemical properties. Titanium diboride can be composite with nonoxidizing ceramics such as SiC, AIN, BN, and TiC and mixed with oxide ceramic materials such as Al2O3. Many practical results have shown that the new composite materials have higher mechanical strength and fracture toughness. Titanium diboride particles mixed with high-performance resin can be made into PTC heating ceramics and flexible PTC materials, which have the characteristics of safety, electricity-saving, and easy processing and molding. It is a critical high-tech material for a new generation of household appliances (electric irons, blankets, ovens, tableware and clothes dryers, air conditioners, hot air heaters, etc.).
