What is MAX phase? MAX phase (including Ti3SiC2, Ti2AlC , etc.) It is a newly developed machinable material. This material contains over fifty types of ternary carbides and nitrides. M represents a metal transition element, A represents the element of the main group and X represents either nitrogen or carbon. The basic chemical equation can be written as M(n+1), AXn. Ti3SiC2 was the most studied.
How can MAX phase materials synthesized be?
The hot pressing method was used by Professor Barsoum’s research group at Drexel University, in the United States, in 1996 to synthesize Ti3SiC2. This material has excellent properties. The unique nano-layered crystalline structure of this material gives it properties like self-lubrication, high toughness and conductivity. They can be used for high-temperature structure materials, electrode brush material, chemical anticorrosion material, and high temperature heating materials. In Japan, Europe and China, extensive research has been carried out on this material type since 1996.

Nb2Alc powder: introduction
The largest phase ceramic, which is Nb2Alc Powder, is a new type conductive ceramic that can be processed. This ceramic is composed of more than 60 ternary compounds or nitRIDEs. A is a group element, usually elements in the third or fourth groups. Niobium Aluminum Carbide, or NBC, is a new ceramic material that combines metal and ceramic advantages. Nb2Alc has excellent mechanical characteristics at high temperature.

How is Nb2AlC produced?
1. Mix niobium, aluminum, and carbon powders and weigh them;
2. To obtain Nb2AlC powder, put the mixed powder in a graphite cylinder, fill it up with inert air, light it, let it burn, do a self-diffusion process, pulverize it, cool it down, sieve it, and then dry it. The method provides a fast reaction time, a short synthesis period, low energy consumption and low costs, as well as high production efficiency. The Nb2Alc Ceramic Powder obtained by this invention can be applied in the aviation, electronics, nuclear, and aerospace industries.

Nb2AlC powder: Storage conditions
Nb2AlC Powder has an effect on the performance of dispersion. The niobium aluminium carbide Nb2AlC should be kept in a vacuum-sealed package in a cool, dry place. Niobium aluminum carburide is not suitable for use. Expose the powder to air. In addition, avoid using Nb2AlC powder under stress.
