Titanium diboride (TiB2) is an extremely hard ceramic which has excellent heat conductivity, oxidation stability and wear resistance. TiB2 is also a reasonable electrical conductor,so it can be used as a cathode material in aluminium smelting and can be shaped by electrical discharge machining.
Titanium diboride (TiB2) is the most stable compound of boron and titanium. It has a C32 structure and is combined in the form of valence bonds. It is a metalloid compound of the hexagonal crystal system. The structural parameters of the complete crystal are: a is 0.3028nm, and C is 0.3228nm. In the crystal structure, the boron atom plane and the titanium atom plane alternately form a two-dimensional network structure, in which B and the other 3 B are covalently bonded, and the extra electron forms a large π bond. This graphite-like layered structure of boron atoms and Ti outer layer electrons determine the good conductivity and metallic luster of TiB2, and the Ti-B bond between the boron atomic surface and the titanium atomic surface determines the high hardness of this material And brittleness.

What is Titanium diboride used for?
1. Conductive ceramic materials. It is one of the main raw materials of the vacuum coating conductive evaporation boat.
2. Ceramic cutting tools and molds. It can manufacture finishing tools, wire drawing dies, extrusion dies, sandblasting nozzles, sealing components, etc.
3. Composite ceramic materials. It can be used as an important component of multi-element composite materials to form composite materials with TiC, TiN, SiC and other materials to make various high-temperature resistant parts and functional parts, such as high-temperature crucibles, engine parts, etc. It is also one of the best materials for making armor protection materials.
4. Cathode coating material for aluminum electrolytic cell. Due to the good wettability of TiB2 and metal aluminum liquid, using TiB2 as the cathode coating material of the aluminum electrolytic cell can reduce the power consumption of the aluminum electrolytic cell and prolong the life of the electrolytic cell.
5 Manufactured into PTC heating ceramic materials and flexible PTC materials. It has the characteristics of safety, power saving, reliability, and easy processing and forming. It is an updated high-tech product of various electric heating materials.
