Expert Reviews

Dr. Marcus Tägtmeyer, (International Medical and Technological University, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania)

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.

Dr. Ms Jane Li,  (National Penghu University of Science and Technology, Magong, Penghu,  Republic of China)

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.

Dr. Willem-Jan de Kleijn Ph.D, (Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, Sweden)

Boron Carbide It has properties of anti-oxidation, high temperature resistant, high strength, high grinding efficiency, high hardness, high elastic modulus, high wear resistant, and good self-lubrication characteristics.

Dr. JKF Gojukai PhD, (Kaiserslautern University of Technology, Kaiserslautern, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany)

Boron carbide fibers and fiber composites may be used in the manufacture of ballistic materials for protective, durable and light weight body armor. The distinct characteristics of advanced boron carbide materials made from boon carbide ceramic fibers light weight, high hardness, wear and corrosion resistant–offer advantages over conventional materials such as plastics and metals. The carbide ceramic is used in tank armor and bulletproof vests.

Dr. Huang Fu Ph.D, (Maebashi Institute of Technology, Maebashi, Gunma, Japan)

We used boron carbide nanopowder for ballistic protection materials which enhance the thermal shock resistance and lubricating properties. We found very excellent desired results.
