What is Zirconium Boride
Zirconium bore ceramic material is highly covalent and refractory. It has hexagonal crystal structures. ZrB2 can melt to 3246 at ultra high temperatures. ZrB2’s low density of 6.09g/cm3 and high high-temperature resistance make it an ideal material for aerospace applications, such as rocket propulsion or hypersonic flight.
Zirconium Boride: Characteristics
Zirconium diboride is one the most popular borides. In the boron-zirconium network, there are three kinds of zirconium bore: zirconium monoboride (or zirconium disboride), zirconium dodecylboride (or zirconium dimoride). Zirconium zirconium is a prepared zirconium boride, which is mainly made from zirconium ziboride. Zirconium boreide is an cubic C32 type compound of metalloid structures. High melting points and hardness are determined by the ZrB ionic link between the zirconium and boron faces and the strong bond from the BB covalent bonds. It also has stability. Zirconium boreide therefore has high melting points, hardness, stability and excellent thermal conductivity.
Zrconium Boride Preparation
There are several ways to prepare zirconium boreide.
Zirconium boreide, due to its exceptional characteristics, has been used extensively as high-temperature and functional materials such as continuous temperature measurement sleeves for molten Steel, continuous cast stainless immersion nozzle, turbine blades in aerospace industry, magnetic fluid generator electros and special circuits.
As modern technology advances, including aerospace, aviation, nuclear energy and smelting technologies, there are more strict requirements for high-temperature structural material. These materials must have high-temperature capabilities to adapt to extreme environments such as heat shock resistance, high temperature resistance, Corrosion resistance or oxidation resistant. The advantages of zirconium-boride ceramics include high melting point and high hardness. They also have good electrical conductivity and neutron control capabilities.
