Zirconium Diboride (ZrB2) Micron Powder
Zirconium diboride (ZrB2) is a highly covalent refractory ceramic material with a hexagonal crystal structure. ZrB2 is an ultra-high temperature ceramic. Its melting point is nearly 3040℃ and has a density of 6.09 g/cm3. Zirconium diboride powder has high hardness, high thermal conductivity, good oxidation resistance, and good anti corrosion ability. Zirconium diboride micron powder has good high temperature strength makes it a candidate for high temperature aerospace applications such as hypersonic flight or rocket propulsion systems. It is an unusual ceramic, having relatively high thermal and electrical conductivities. Thus, it is used in special ceramic refractory industry, nuclear industry, space industry, and military industry. Besides, it is very useful in nuclear applications because of the presence of Boron-10. Also used as an aerospace refractory, in cutting tools and to protect thermocouple tubes. ZrB2 micron powder is used in ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites. Other applications include use of its relatively high conductivity, especially for a ceramic.
