Titanium Carbide TiC | Vanadium Carbide VC


Titanium Carbide TiC, gray powder with cubic lattice system structure, density 4.93g/cm3, melting point 3160°C, boiling point 4300°C, is insoluble in water but dissolved in Aqua regia, nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid, and also in alkaline oxide solution. Titanium Carbide TiC is a typical transition metal carbide. The crystal structure determines its basic characteristics such as high hardness, high melting point, wear resistance and electrical conductivity. Titanium carbide ceramics are the most widely developed materials among the transition metal carbides of titanium, zirconium and chromium.  Titanium Carbide TiC and Vanadium Carbide VC at Western Minmetals (SC) Corporation can be delivered in size of powder 0.5-500 micron or 5-400 mesh or as customized specification, package of 25kg, 50kg in plastic bag with iron drum outside.


Titanium Carbide TiC is mainly used in high temperature-resistant thermal spraying material, welding material, hard film material, heat resistance material, or as additive in preparation of cermet and cemented carbide production, and also for making thermistor to improve wear resistance. By the synthesis of solid solution with other carbides TaC, NbC, WC and Cr3C2 etc to form compound, which extensively applies in the spraying material, welding material, hard alloy etc.
