What is Titanium Aluminum Carbide Max Phase?

Titanium-aluminum carbide max phase (Ti3AlC2) is a new type of three-layer structure ceramic material, which has been widely concerned by material scientists and physicists due to its unique properties.

Titanium aluminum carbide max phase micron powder (Ti3AlC2 belongs to the hexagonal crystal system, and has the characteristics of metal and ceramics: it has the same conductivity and heat conduction as metal, but also has the same high elastic modulus and excellent high-temperature mechanical properties as ceramic, with good conductivity and heat conduction capability, high elastic modulus and low Vickers hardness, and good damage resistance capability. It can be machined at room temperature and produce plastic deformation at high temperature. It also has good high temperature stability and oxidation resistance. It also has good thermal shock resistance, damage resistance and excellent chemical corrosion resistance. 


MAX phase ceramics, particularly Ti3AlC2, represent a category of processable conductive ceramics encompassing over sixty ternary carbides or nitrides. The nomenclature denotes "M" as early transition metal, "A" as main group elements (typically from the third and fourth groups), and "X" as carbon or nitrogen. Among these, Ti3AlC2 has garnered significant attention.

Ti3AlC2's versatile properties position it for various applications.

  • High-Temperature Structural Material: Ti3AlC2 finds use in high-temperature scenarios due to its robust characteristics.
