What material is zirconium carbide?


What’s ZrC powder exactly?

Zirconium carbid is an extremely hard material that has high melting points and good high-temperature resistance. You can use them to create alloy steel, and as solid fuel for rocket engines. This is also the raw material used to make zirconium metallic, zirconium trioxide, and fine ceramic materials.
This material has a strong ZrC-C covalent bond which gives it a very high melting temperature (3530degC), high module (440 GPa), as well as a 25 GPa hardness. ZrC’s density is 6.73g/cm3 lower than that of other carbides, such as TaC (14.75 g/cm3) or WC (15.8g/cm3). ZrC may be used for supersonic or rocket/hyperjet aircraft, which require low density and high temperatures load-bearing capacities.


Method of production for zirconium carbonide

Both technetium oxide (or charcoal) are the raw materials. They are combined, put in a graphitecrucible to carbonize, heated to 2400 under hydrogen atmosphere and then reacted to produce zirconium caride. Mixing zirconium dioxide and carbon noir can be done under pressure. They are heated up to 1800 in an Induction Heating graphite Crucible, in which the hydrogen atmosphere is maintained. Iy2% carbon dark will then be added to them. Finally, they will be annealed in vacuum at 17001900 to make zirconium caride. You can also mix zirconium dioxide and magnesium, then heat to 750 and pickle with hydrochloric acids to extract byproducts.
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is another method of manufacturing. The process involves heating the zirconium sponge, and decomposing any halide gases. The preparation of composite materials is one way to increase the resistance to oxidation. ZrC – ZrB2 and ZrC – ZrB2-SiC were the two most popular composite materials. These composite materials are capable of working at temperatures above 1800°C. This situation can be improved by using another material, like TRISO fuel particle as a barrier.


Properties of chemicals


ZrC powder

Zirconium carbonide is a cubic, shiny and gray crystalline powder. Lattice constant. 1 0. 46983nm. Melting point 3532. Boiling point 5100. Relative density 6. 73. Mohs hardness 89, microhardness 2700kg/mm. The elastic modulus of 3. 48x10sN/mm2, thermal expansion coefficient 6. The heat of formation for 73x10s is-196. 8kj/mol specific heat potential is 37. 8J/(mol–K), and resistance is 42u cm. Hydrochloric acid is insoluble. It dissolves in hydrofluoric, nitric, and hydrofluoric acids. However, it can be soluble or insoluble in hot sulfuric acid with hydrogen peroxide. The chemical reaction with chlorine can cause zirconium dioxide to be formed at higher temperatures.
