1. Ti3SiC2 layers ceramic material: What’s it?
Titanium silicon carbonide Ti3SiC2 or Titanium Silicon Carbide is a broad ceramic material. It not only has the characteristics of high temperature resistance and oxidation resistance but also the electrical conductivity heat conduction and workability. Ti3SiC2 can be treated like metal and has all the properties of metal. You can keep high levels of strength even at extreme temperatures due to its plasticity. Even more important is its lower friction coefficient, and better self-lubricating performance that traditional solid lubricants graphite and molybdenum sulfide.
2. Ti3SiC2 is a layered ceramic material with the following main properties
Ti3SiC2 blends the best of both ceramics and metals. High melting point, high elastic module, and high temperature stability are all characteristics of comparable ceramics. Similarities in electrical conductivity, high melt point, and high temperature stability reflect similarities in ceramics.
Sub-indentation in Ti3SiC2’s damage resistance has been shown to indicate that there is large pseudoplastic damage. Ti3SiC2’s multiple energy absorption mechanisms in contact with damage include crack deflection, diffusion microcracks and grain pullout. This type of material is also very self-lubricating. It can be used in a variety of applications, including high-temperature structures, brushes, self-lubricating and heat exchange materials. The material’s relatively low hardness, wear resistance, or oxidation resist of other ceramic materials make it unsuitable for use in delicate applications, such as fatigue resistance.
3rd, application of Ti3SiC2-layered ceramic materials
(1) For biomedical purposes
Dental materials and components must be able to resist long-term oxidation and remain stable. They also have to be flexible and workable. Ti3SiC2 shares the characteristics of both ceramic and metal materials, but is biocompatible, so it can be used on the human body. Ti3SiC2 can easily be machined to precise thread size without the use of lubricant. It can also be used as a material for dental restorations or implants. The Ti3SiC2 elastic modulus is lower than that of zirconia (1.9105MPa), which makes it more suitable for dental crowns made from porcelain. Ti3SiC2 materials are self-propagating and high in temperature. They have a porous structure that may make it more easy to arrange and mix with. It is possible to use orthodontics to enhance sliding and lower friction resistance due to the low coefficient of friction. Material stability and corrosion resistance are essential conditions. The bonding strength of this and porcelain powder is comparable to that of porcelain or metal. Porcelain dental crowns have a wider application.
To obtain pure Ti3SiC2 blocks using the current Ti3SiC2 preparation processes, however, it is necessary to improve the process and understand the material better. Additional clinical and laboratory research is needed to validate the material’s clinical viability and biocompatibility.
(2) Applicable to refractory substances
As rapid firing technology becomes more popular in ceramic industries, so too is the time it takes to kiln furniture. These conditions can be even more difficult. It is important that kiln furniture materials are thermally resistant in order to be able to meet rapid firing technologies. Development requirements. Quality of the kiln furnishings has a significant impact on the quality and fire quality. Thermal shock isn’t a problem with Ti3SiC2 ceramic. The material’s unique layer structure and high-temperature plasticity can help to reduce thermal stress. Even after undergoing a thermal shock at T=1400, the material retains a strength of 300 MPa. It can also resist thermal shock up to 900 degrees. Ti3SiC2 ceramic materials have the advantage of being chemical resistant, simple to process, and low cost. This makes them an excellent material for kiln furniture development.
Because of the outstanding characteristics of spherical aluminum in terms of electrical, thermal, mechanical properties it is extensively used in the area of semiconductor electronic packaging.
