Titanium Carbide Nanoparticles/Nanopowder
Category: Pre-market additives

A fine black powder composed of 40nm nanoparticles of titanium carbide. This material is noteworthy for conductivity and its chemical inertness, making it useful in a variety of applications across multiple domains.

Typical Use:

Can be used for:

  • Wear-resistant tools. The resilience of titanium carbide makes its particles ideal for producing wear-resistant tools of various types, including cutting tools and certain tools with abrasive surfaces.
  • Abrasive bearings. Titanium carbide plays a critical role in the production of certain abrasive bearings.
  • Coatings. Like many nanopowders, titanium carbide is particularly useful in producing specialized coatings. In particular, it’s used to produce wear-resistant protective coatings and abrasive coatings. It is also used for conductive purposes in some cases.
  • Conductive Coatings. Titanium carbide is fairly conductive, making it a useful additive for alloys and composite materials and in producing conductive coatings.
