Boron Carbide Nanoparticles possesses high purity, narrow range particle size distribution, larger specific surface area. The melting point  of boron carbide nanopowder is up to 2350oC, boiling point higher than 3500℃ hardness up to 9.3, flexural strength ≥ 400Mpa. B4C nanoparticle does not react with acid and alkali solution. It has high chemical potential and is one of the most stable materials to acid.

Boron Carbide Nanoparticles is a high performance abrasive material with chemical and physical properties similar to diamonds, such as, chemical resistance and hardness. Boron carbide’s extra hardness gives it the nickname “Black Diamond” (It ranks third after diamond and boron nitride) and is one of the leading grinding materials.

Boron Carbide Nanoparticles is a semiconductor, with electronic properties dominated by hopping-type transport. The energy band gap depends on composition as well as the degree of order. The band gap is estimated at 2.09 eV, with multiple mid-bandgap states which complicate the photoluminescence spectrum. The material is typically p-type. boron carbide was a p-type semiconductor with an estimated band gap of 1.64 eV.82 This is much smaller than the band gap of other semiconductor ceramics.

Boron Carbide Nanoparticles with its high hardness is widely used in polishing, lapping and drilling of hard metals, corundum, sapphire, glass and ceramics, as well as a loose abrasive in cutting applications such as water jet cutting. It can also be used for dressing diamond tools.Wear parts such as blasting nozzles, wire-drawing dies, powdered metal and ceramic forming dies. Nuclear applications such as reactor control rods and neutron absorbing shielding

Boron Carbide Nanoparticles is a material used in tank armors and bulletproof vests and as well as numerous industrial applications. Hardness of boron carbide and silicon carbide is extremely high, and density is relatively low, making it an ideal material for bullet proof  vest. It has good corrosion resistance, great mechanical strength under high temperature and excellent wear resistance. Boron carbide is also the most important ceramic material for ceramic armor. This carbide ceramic is used in tank armor and bulletproof vests.
