More info

The molecular formula of zirconium boride is ZrB2. Nature gray hard crystals. Zirconium boride has three components: zirconium monoboride, zirconium diboride, and zirconium triboride. Only zirconium diboride is stable in a wide temperature range. Industrial production is mainly based on zirconium diboride. The electrical resistance is slightly lower than that of metal zirconium. It is stable in a larger temperature range after heating. Although it has a high melting point, it can be sintered at a lower temperature. It is prepared by mixing metal zirconium with boron carbide and boron nitride and heating it to 2000°C in an argon gas stream.

  • Molecular formula: ZrB2
  • CAS No.: 12045-64-6

Its properties are utilized in heat-resistant ceramics, fire-proof materials, and super-hard materials. In addition, zirconium boride has good neutron control ability, can be used in the nuclear industry. Its various excellent characteristics make it a high-performance refractory with great development prospects.
