Overview of Hafnium Diboride Pulver
This is a gray-colored crystal with metallic luster. It exhibits high conductivity and is stable in chemical properties. It is indistinguishable from all other chemical reagents at room temperature, with the exception of hydrofluoric acids. You prepare it by heating hafnium oxide, boron carbonide, and hafnium bioxide, or by reducing hafnium trichloride and hafnium trichloride under 2000 hydrogen or directly reacting hafnium or boron. It is used to make superalloys.
Hafnium Diboride has a high melting point, high hardness and excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. It also exhibits good neutron absorption properties. It can be used to make electrode materials, super-hard materials and neutron absorption material.
With the rapid advancement in material technology, hafnium dioxide ceramics and composite materials have more applications. At home and abroad, it is a major R&D priority to find low-cost, high-quality hafnium dioxide powder. Hafnium Diboride is hard to sinter. To improve the sintering performance it is important to obtain ultrafine powder. While nano-powder offers superior performance, it is costly and difficult to disperse during raw materials processing. The development of submicron hafnium triboride powder has been gaining increasing attention.

What are the uses for Hafnium Diboride Powder
Hafnium Diboride in wear-resistant coats Because of its exceptional fire resistance, it can also be used in ultra high temperature composite materials (SiC) with silicon carbide. This material is more resistant to oxidation when it has been combined with silicon carbide.
Temperature and pressure determine the resistance to oxidation of hafnium-diboride. A protective oxide scale of hafniumoxide is formed when the temperature is 1500 degrees Celsius and the pressure is 1 atmosphere. HfB2’s oxidation resistance will decrease significantly if it is heated above 1600°C or the pressure drops below one atm. These conditions will cause the boiling temperature for B2O3 (one oxidation product of HfB2) to exceed 1400°C. A protective oxide layer will then form.
Because of its strength and thermal characteristics, HfB2 can be used in ultra high-speed reentry vehicle, such as heat shields, for intercontinental ballistic missiles, or aerodynamic fronts. HfB2 forms aerodynamic shapes unlike composite and polymers, and does not ablate during reentry.
Hafnium Diboride has been also investigated as a possibility for new materials in nuclear reactor control rods.
Hafnium-diboride is being investigated as a diffusion barrier for microchips. If the synthesis is correct the barrier thickness could be less than 7 nanometers.
