3M™ Boron Carbide (B4C), Calcium Hexaboride (CaB6) and Titanium Diboride (TiB2) Powders & Grains as Wear Protection: Wear in the production process generates increased overheads and impairs quality. That is why we have developed the special additives:
3M™ Boron Carbide (B4C)
3M™ Titanium Diboride (TiB2)
3M™ Calcium Hexaboride (CaB6)
In the ceramics industry, plant engineering and the chemical and construction industries, these additives protect technical plants and machines permanently and securely against wear as a result of chemical reactions, extreme heat and high pressures.
- Constituent of electrode materials for wear protection
The extreme hardness of our materials makes them ideally suited for wear protection in welding and thermal spraying.
- For sintering and hot pressing
Among other applications, for the sintering and hot pressing of powders and grains in the production of wear-resistant articles and plates.
- For boriding
Boriding is a wear protection process in which extremely wear-resistant boride coatings are applied by the diffusion of boron atoms into the metal surface.
