What is Zirconium Carbide ZrC

What exactly is Zirconium Carbide ZrC and what can it do?

Zirconium carbide (ZrC) ZrC, a dark gray cubic cristal with metallic luster, is available. Crispy. The melting point is 3532. The boiling point is 5100. The density is 6.73g/cm3. Mohs hardness is between 8 and 9. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid and cold water. It is soluble in hydrofluoric acid as well as the hot sulfuric acid that contains nitric acid or hydrogen peroxide. It is strongly reacted with chlorine in high temperatures, forming zirconium tricholoride. Zirconia is created by the burning in the air at 700 degrees Celsius. ZrC does not react with water.

Zirconium carbide, a highly melting material, is extremely durable and is extremely resistant to high temperatures. It is used to make solid propellant for rocket motors. It is utilized in the production and the processing of alloy steel. It is also used in the manufacture of zirconium tetrachloride, as well as fine ceramic materials.

What’s Zirconium Carbide ZrC useful for?

For nuclear reactors, fire-resistant coatings may be made from niobium and zirconium carbide. The coating is able to shield the nuclear fuel uranium dioxide as well as thorium dioxide particles because of its weak neutron absorb cross section and weak sensitivity from radiation damage. The coating is typically deposited in the fluidized bed reactor through thermal chemical deposition of vapors. It has a high emissivity and a high capacitance for current at high temperatures which makes it a promising material.

It is also employed to make claddings, cermets, and incandescent filaments.

Are zirconium-carbide ZrC a ceramic material?

Zirconium carbonide is a tough refractory ceramic materials.

It is resistant to corrosion. This intrastitial IV transition metal carbide is also part of ultra-high temperature ceramics, or UHTCs. The material has a strong Zr–C covalent link that provides it with a high melt point ( 3530degC), high modularity ( 440GPa) and hardness (30GPa).

Zirconium Carbide ZrC Melting Point

The melting point of zirconium-carbidide is 3532°C (6390°F).

Zirconium Carbide ZrC Thermal Conductivity.

ZrC has a thermal conductivity of 20.5W/m*K. Conductivity electrical (resistivity 43mOcm).
