Boron Carbide Ceramic
Boron carbide composite is a composite of boron carbide and silicon carbide which leads to an increase in strength and hardness as compared to other composite materials.
Excellent Abrasion & Wear Resistance
The high hardness and fine grain size of the boron carbide composite makes the material ideal for components subjected to severe abrasion and wear.
Boron Carbide Properties
All properties are at room temperature (20°C) unless otherwise stated.
