    Vanadium Carbide Powder

  • Description

    A fine gray metallic powder, this refractory ceramic material is not able for being extremely hard, chemically stable, and ideal for high-temperature applications thanks to a high melting point and other versatile thermal properties. They are frequently used in conjunction with other Carbides as an additive. Vanadium Carbide powder maintains a cubic crystal structure, and may be the hardest known metal-carbide with its hardness ranging from 9 to 9.5 Mohs.

    • Tools and abrasives: Like many of its related refractory ceramics, Vanadium Carbide is frequently used to produce extremely hard, wear-resistant surfaces for cutting tools, bits, and other mechanical surfaces prone to extreme wear and tear.

    • Metallurgy: Given its unique hardness and corrosion-resistance, Vanadium Carbide powder is frequently used as an additive in alloys. In particular, it’s utilized in the production of tungsten carbide to improve the cermet by refining the Carbide crystals.

    • Coatings: Like many Carbide powders, Vanadium Carbide powder is frequently used to produce extremely hard coatings for high-stress applications. Treated properly, a material coated with Vanadium Carbide is up to twice as hard as one with a cemented Carbide coating.
