Titanium Diboride (TiB2) is produced by Momentive using a continuous chemical process that controls stoichiometry and particle size to create high purity powders with consistent properties. TiB2 ceramics combine superior hardness and corrosion resistance with a high melting point (>2900°C) and good oxidation resistance to 1000°C.
Know more About Product
Capable of providing exceptional electrical and thermal conductivity with flat, plate-shaped particles, titanium diboride powders are designed to boost thermal conductivity when used as a filler in polymeric matrices. Formulated for superior chemical resistance, titanium diboride powders do not react to molten, nonferrous metals (like Cu, Zn and Al), which enables them to be used as crucibles, vacuum metallization components and electrodes in the processing of those nonferrous materials. Titanium diboride powders can be easily hot-pressed into customized shapes and forms, which may also be engineered to meet tight tolerances and complex patterns, under certain conditions.
Nearly as hard as diamonds when sintered, TiB2 is tough enough to be used as military armor and is a valuable addition to improve the fracture toughness of ceramic cutting tools and other components.
Excellent conductivity of both electricity and heat makes TiB2 valuable in electronic and specialty applications. Its flat, plate-shaped particles also enhance thermal conductivity when used as a filler in polymeric matrices.
Titanium Diboride will not react with molten, nonferrous metals including Cu, Zn and Al. This enables TiB2 to be used as crucibles, vacuum metallization components and electrodes when processing these materials.
Titanium Diboride powders may typically be hot-pressed or HIP'd into desired shapes. Electrical conductivity also enables these ceramic forms to be fabricated into close tolerance, complex shapes using EDM techniques.
