What is Tantalum Carbide?

How do you define it?

Tantalum Carbide


Tantalum carbide is a white metallic cubic crystal, which belongs to the sodium-chloride type cubic crystal systems. Tantalum carbonide can be used in cemented carbide sintered grains growth inhibitors. The density of the powder is 14.3g/cm3. Tantalum carbide is insoluble and insoluble when dissolved in water. It can also be easily soluble and decomposed in mixed acids of hydrofluoric or nitric acid. It has strong antioxidant properties and can be easily melted or decomposed with potassium pyrosulfate. Superior conductivity at room temperatures of 30O. Powder metallurgy and cutting tools. Fine ceramics. Chemical Vapor Deposition. Hard wear-resistant alloy cutting tools. Tools and molds. Wear-resistant and corrosion resistant structural components. Watch decoration can be made from the tantalum carbide sintered body. It is a golden yellow color.

Tantalum Carbide’s main attributes

The advantages of ceramic Tantalum carbide or (TaC), include high melting point (3880-degC), high toughness (2100HV0.05), excellent chemical stability and high electrical and thermal conductivity. Other substrates and aluminum base. Chao et al. The laser cladding technique was used to create a nickel-based reinforced tandemlum carbide (SCC) surface composite material. Yu and colleagues found that the material’s hardness is much higher than that of pure nickel. The wear rate of the composite material is also significantly lower that that of hardened iron. Relationship between the in-situ directional solidification tantalum carbide enhanced by base, aluminum base and chromium bases. Results show that as the solidification rate increases, so does the solid phase structure. Also, tantalum carbonide volume fractions change. Wang Wenli et al. The laser cladding technique was applied to the preparation of an in-situ TaC alloy-enhanced, nickel-based composite coat on A3-steel. Smooth surface with a strong metallurgical connection between the substrate and the coating. Unfortunately, very few reports have been made about the in-situ generation of TaC using steel substrates. In this study, we used the surface ceramic particle reinforced iron matrix composite method. TaC particles serve as reinforcement particles for the second phase. We analyzed the micromorphology, reaction and physical properties of TaC particle in-situ reinforced iron based surface composites.

Tantalum Carbide has many applications

1. Cemented carbide is used a lot as an additive. Its main purpose is to enhance the high-temperature strength and stop the growth of particles of tungsten caride.

2. Use it as a coating on cutting tools to enhance the chemical corrosion resistance or wear resistance of base metal.

3. The military can use it as a chemicalbook coat for the jet engine blades and rocketnozzles. It will significantly increase its ablation resistance, and can prolong its service lives.

4. Due to its high electrical conductivity. Because of its good electrical conductivity, you can use it for electrode materials. However, wire EDM can make complex shapes with this material.

5. This second phase composite material is known for its use in aerospace, metals, building materials and electric power.
