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.

Boron carbide fibers and fiber composites may find utility in ballistic applications, where the combination of high hardness, light weight, and high elastic modulus give the material an exceptionally high specific stopping power.

Military applications, boron carbide fibers and fiber composites may also find utility in civilian markets, including erosion resisting applications due to its high hardness, light weight, high elastic modulus, and erosion resistance characteristics that provide improved abrasion resistance. Boron carbide may also be used in conjunction with other materials to provide desired materials properties and characteristics.
