What is Titanium aluminum carbide?

The microstructure of the interface between Ti 3 AlC 2 and Ti 2 AlC and the formed Al 2 O 3 makes the materials have the ability to self-healing at high temperatures. At high temperatures, cracks or nicks on the surface of the material are filled with the oxide, thus restoring the original properties of the material, especially the mechanical properties. This characteristic is of great significance to maintain the mechanical properties of materials, improve the stability and reliability of materials, and make them more likely to be used in a high-temperature environment. Titanium aluminum carbide (Ti 3 AlC 2 and Ti 2 AlC) can be welded by themselves and between layers respectively due to the rapid diffusion and selective oxidation of Al at high temperature.

Titanium aluminum carbide application
In the process of oxidation, Al in the MAX phase of the Ti-Al-C system can rapidly diffuse and selectively oxidize to form a dense Al2O3 film to prevent further oxidation of the matrix material. The microstructure of the interface between titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2 and Ti2AlC) and the generated Al2O3 makes the material have the ability to self-healing at high temperatures. At high temperatures, cracks or nicks on the surface of the material are filled with the oxide, thus restoring the original properties of the material, especially the mechanical properties. This characteristic is of great significance to maintain the mechanical properties of materials, improve the stability and reliability of materials, and make them more likely to be used in a high-temperature environment.
Titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2 and Ti2AlC) can be welded by themselves and between layers respectively due to the rapid diffusion and selective oxidation of Al at high temperature. The fracture toughness of titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2 and Ti2AlC) laminated materials obtained by self-welding is much higher than that of single-phase materials.
By using the weak bonding between the Al lamellar and TiC lamellar of Titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2) in the MAX phase, the Al in Titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2) can be densified by hydrofluoric acid (HF) to prepare a new type of two-dimensional carbide called "MXene", whose morphology is similar to that of graphene.MXene's good electrical conductivity makes it a possible material for lithium-ion batteries.
MAX phase products, especially Titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2), have a series of characteristics such as high damage tolerance, good mechanical and thermal properties, which make it possible to be used in the fourth generation of nuclear reactors as the nuclear fuel cladding material in gas-cooled fast reactors. In recent years, the radiation damage resistance of titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) has attracted more and more attention.
