Lanthanum Hexaboride (LaB6)

Other grades, i.e. coarse and fine powders are available upon request.


Typical applications

  • Hot-pressed composites of excellent electrical conductivity, e.g. evaporation boats (TiB2-BN or TiB2-BN-AlN) for continuous aluminum metallizing
  • Crucible material for non-ferrous metals (Al, Cu, Mg, Zn, etc.)
  • Ceramic shapes to be used in production of Al in Hall-Héroult cells
  • Hot-pressed TiB2 armor plates
  • Cutting tools and cermets, used for machining aluminum
  • Metal Matrix composites (MMCs)
