Boride ceramic powders

Due to their hardness, chemical, and thermal resistance, borides are materials meeting the highest demands. They are are used, for example, in high-temperature furnaces, turbine blades and armor plates. The most significant boride is titanium boride (TiB2), which is characterized by its high hardness, high melting point at over 3.200 ° C and its electrical conductivity; it is used for the production of evaporation boats. A number of various borides can be produced and be supplied into different industries.
