Boron Carbide 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 nanopowder 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.

Modern military equipment must be highly exile, rapid response and provide maximum safety. Ballistic protection is one such area. Boron carbide highest protection is one such area. Boron carbide highest protection levels at lowest possible weight. It have ballistic protection of aircraft. It also used for helicopter seats.

We used boron carbide nanopowder for aircraft application to enchance durable, light weight and bllaistic protection of aircraft. We found very excellent desired results.
