What is Titanium carbide used for?
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil -- Vale today announced that it has completed a pre-feasibility study for its proposed nickel sulfate project in Quebec, Canada, a major milestone in the development of the project. This strategic move demonstrates vale's focus on delivering low carbon and high purity nickel titanium carbide are still very uncertain.
What is Titanium carbide?
Titanium carbide chemical formula is TiC. The molecular weight of titanium carbide is 59.89. Gray metallic face-centered cubic lattice solid. Titanium carbide melting point is 3140 ±90℃. Titanium carbide boiling point is 4820℃ and the relative density is 4.93. The hardness is greater than 9 Mohs.
Titanium carbide is insoluble in water, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia. It is stable to air when it is lower than 800℃, eroded by air when it is higher than 2000℃, and can react with pure O2 at 1150℃.
What is titanium carbide used for?
Titanium carbide is used to make cemented carbide and as an electrode and abrasive for arc lamps.
Titanium carbide is used to prepare cermet. Titanium carbide is usually used to process steel at high cutting speed because of its wear resistance and high hardness. It is also used as a wear-resistant surface coating for metal parts, such as tool drills and watch mechanisms. Titanium carbide is also used as a thermal insulation coating for re-entry of spacecraft.
Titanium carbide is an important component of cemented carbide and is used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking industry. For example, 7075 aluminum alloy (AA7075) is almost as strong as steel, but weighs 1/3 of steel. Large alloy parts can be welded by using AA7075 rods with TiC nanoparticles without cracks caused by phase segregation.
Titanium carbide vs. Tungsten carbide
The carbide has a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9, a melting temperature of 2870°C and a low electrical resistance. it is often used as cutting tool materials, braiding, high hardness armor or armor piercing cores, as well as pointed beads that require high hardness sports equipment parts and atoms. It can also be used as a neutron reflector.
Titanium carbide is lighter and cheaper than tungsten carbide, but it is more brittle in cutting tools.
When titanium carbide is combined with tungsten carbide in sintered cemented carbide tool materials, the tendency of pits in the tool can be reduced.

Goldman Sachs said its forecast for the price of Brent crude in 2023 would be cut from $125 to $10 a barrel if Iranian crude returned to the market.
From January to June in 2022, primary aluminum, copper, lead, tin and nickel were in short supply, while zinc was in excess supply, according to the World Bureau of Metal Statistics.
Global aluminium giant Hydro will close an aluminum smelter in Slovakia next month because of soaring electricity prices in Europe, adding to pressure on European industries, including the metals industry. Zinc prices were also affected, hitting a two-month high on Tuesday.
Hydro said the shutdown was a response to unfavorable conditions, including "no sign of improvement in high electricity prices in the short term". The smelter is operating at 60 per cent of its annual capacity of 175000 tonnes and will suffer huge losses if it continues to operate for the rest of 2022.
Industries from fertiliser to aluminium have been paralysed by soaring energy costs as European natural gas supplies are tight, and the worst energy crisis in decades is expected to continue into next year, with benchmark electricity prices surging to record highs on Tuesday.
