What is Titanium diboride?
Titanium diboride (TiB2) is a gray-black hexagonal crystal or powder with excellent overall performance, thermal stability, oxidation resistance, and electrical conductivity. TiB2 is used for hot-pressed ceramic products that require good electrical conductivity, industrial aluminum electrolytic cell cathode coating materials, hot-pressed titanium diboride + boron carbide composite bulletproof ceramic inserts, and titanium diboride-based cermet materials.
Features of Titanium diboride
High purity: the highest purity can reach 99.99%, XRD detects no impurity phase, GDMS detect low metal impurity element content; Small particle size: the smallest particle size is 20-40nm; Concentrated distribution: standard normal particle size distribution, no bimodal or multimodal. Typical application: Standard 1-3um (D10>1.0um, D50: 1.2～1.8um, D90<3.0um, 80% of the particle size is concentrated in the range of 1-3um), 0.5-1.0um (D50: 0.5～0.8um, D90＜1.0um) is mainly used in hot-pressed titanium diboride + boron carbide composite bulletproof ceramic inserts Titanium diboride nanoparticles should be sealed in vacuum and stored in a cool and dry room. It should not be exposed to air and avoid stress. Titanium boride nanoparticles are used in hard materials such as ceramic cutting tools, sandblasting nozzles, and metal worlds. It is also used in making armor protection materials. Titanium boride nanoparticles are used as a composite material. It is used in electrical conductivity composite materials and multi-element composite materials.
Production of Titanium diboride
TiB2 does not occur naturally on the earth. Titanium diboride powder can be prepared by a variety of high-temperature methods, such as the direct reactions of titanium or its oxides/hydrides, with elemental boron over 1000 °C, carbothermal reduction by thermite reaction of titanium oxide and boron oxide, or hydrogen reduction of boron halides in the presence of the metal or its halides. Electrochemical and solid-state reactions have been developed among various synthesis routes to prepare finer titanium diboride in large quantities. An example of a solid-state reaction is boro thermic reduction. Solution phase reaction of NaBH4 and TiCl4, followed by annealing the amorphous precursor obtained at 900–1100 °C. Mechanical alloying of a mixture of elemental Ti and B powders. Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis process involving the addition of varying amounts of NaCl. Milling-assisted self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (MA-SHS). Solvothermal reaction in benzene of metallic sodium with amorphous boron powder and TiCl4 at 400 °C
