Global Boron Carbide Market: Overview
Boron carbide is a ceramic material which is chiefly used as an abrasive for commercial as well as industrial applications. It is manufactured in an electric arc furnace by reacting boric oxide and carbon. Boron carbide has properties such as high abrasion resistance, incredible hardness and high resistance to wear, industrial shock resistance, impact resistance and low thermal conductivity. These features make it a highly used product in the manufacturing industry. Boron carbide is also used in refractory industry as an antioxidant and in nuclear reactors, it is used as an absorbent of the neutron. There is a gradually increasing demand for technically advanced materials which will result in an increasing demand for boron carbide in the market.
