What is it?

Chromium Carbide

Chromium carbide has a high melting temperature and is highly resistant to corrosion, wear, and oxidation. It can be used in high-temperature environments (1000-1100). Because of its exceptional high temperature performance, it’s widely used in thermal spraying to protect metal surfaces and as an additive to cemented carbide.

The key features of

Chromium Carbide

Gray powder with metallic shine; Orthorhombic system. Density: 6.68g/cm3. Melting Point: 1890. Excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance and resistance to oxidation in high temperatures (1000-1100). It is a part of a metal ceramic. Chromium carbide is strong in high-temperature oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, and thermal properties that are similar to those of steel. It is a good material for many industries.

The manufacturing of Chromium Carbide

Method for metal chromium pulverization by electrolytic chromium: The carbon noir is crushed with electrolytic chromemium in a proportion of 13.5% – 64% (mass) to make 325 mesh metal powder. This is more than the combined carbon content of 11.333%. Dry mixing the raw material with a ballmill. Add 1% to 3.3% of stearic acid to the mold as a lubricant. You should press mold with more than 1T/cChemicalbookm2 of pressure. Place the powder that has been pressed into a graphite crucible or plate. Heat it in a Taman furnace (or an induction heating furnace) to 1500-1700degC. Then, let it cool in a hydrogen stream to make Chromium.

The applications

Chromium Carbide

1. It can also be used as an addition to cemented carbonide (such as the tungsten-based cemented crate grain refiner), which can then be used in mining and machining.

2. It can be used in welding additives. It can be used as a welding rod to cover the Chemicalbook surface of some types of mechanical equipment, including a ball mill, coal mill, and jaw plate. It can be used to increase the service-life of many other equipment.

3. A wide range of thermal spray material are available for metal surface protection technology. Ding Hong from Chemicalbook edited this information.

4. For chromium carbide ceramics. To form a melting coating on ceramics and metal surfaces, coarse-grained chrome carbide can be used. It has the properties of wear resistance, heat resistance, corrosion resistance and more. It is widely used in aircraft engines, petrochemical mechanical devices and other applications to increase mechanical life. It can also be used to spray semiconductor films.
