Carbides ceramic powders

Carbides combine the unique combination of low specific gravity; excellent elastic modulus and high hardness. Boron carbide (B4C), for example, is an attractive ceramic for personal armor applications. Other carbides and mixtures thereof are important raw materials for hard metal production and improved wear resistance.
