What is Titanium carbide used for?
The European Commission has submitted to member states a new draft of sanctions against Russia, including an oil embargo. Some member states that rely heavily on Russian energy sought exemptions.
Western media reported that the European Commission draft of the sixth round of sanctions against Russia includes within six to eight months gradually banning oil imports from Russia, but allowing Hungary and Slovakia to extend the transition period for several months; The Russian Savings bank and other large financial institutions on the sanctions list.
The European Union has imported 44 billion euros of fossil fuels from Russia since Russia launched its special military operation against Ukraine in late February, according to Finland's Energy and Clean Air Research Center.
The Institute for European and Global Economics in Brussels estimates that the European Union currently consumes about $450 million worth of Russian oil a day.
Among EU members, landlocked Hungary and Slovakia, which import most of their oil from Russia, cannot quickly find alternative supplies. Slovakia says the transition will take years. Some officials believe Bulgaria and the Czech Republic may also seek to opt out of oil sanctions against Russia.
Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk titanium carbide are still very uncertain.
What is Titanium carbide?
Titanium carbide chemical formula is TiC. The molecular weight of titanium carbide is 59.89. Gray metallic face-centered cubic lattice solid. Titanium carbide melting point is 3140 ±90℃. Titanium carbide boiling point is 4820℃ and the relative density is 4.93. The hardness is greater than 9 Mohs.
Titanium carbide is insoluble in water, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia. It is stable to air when it is lower than 800℃, eroded by air when it is higher than 2000℃, and can react with pure O2 at 1150℃.
What is titanium carbide used for?
Titanium carbide is used to make cemented carbide and as an electrode and abrasive for arc lamps.
Titanium carbide is used to prepare cermet. Titanium carbide is usually used to process steel at high cutting speed because of its wear resistance and high hardness. It is also used as a wear-resistant surface coating for metal parts, such as tool drills and watch mechanisms. Titanium carbide is also used as a thermal insulation coating for re-entry of spacecraft.
Titanium carbide is an important component of cemented carbide and is used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking industry. For example, 7075 aluminum alloy (AA7075) is almost as strong as steel, but weighs 1/3 of steel. Large alloy parts can be welded by using AA7075 rods with TiC nanoparticles without cracks caused by phase segregation.
Titanium carbide vs. Tungsten carbide
The carbide has a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9, a melting temperature of 2870°C and a low electrical resistance. it is often used as cutting tool materials, braiding, high hardness armor or armor piercing cores, as well as pointed beads that require high hardness sports equipment parts and atoms. It can also be used as a neutron reflector.
Titanium carbide is lighter and cheaper than tungsten carbide, but it is more brittle in cutting tools.
When titanium carbide is combined with tungsten carbide in sintered cemented carbide tool materials, the tendency of pits in the tool can be reduced.
