What is Titanium carbide used for?

According to the Syrian News Agency, the United States illegally stationed troops in Syria using 123 tankers loaded with oil stolen from oil fields in northeastern Syria and headed to Iraq in batches. The convoy of oil tanks stopped and unloaded at the illegal crossing point in Mahmudi and temporarily placed the goods in a large warehouse pending further transport to the United States base in Iraq.

Recently, the illegal stationing of US troops to steal Syrian oil has become more and more frequent. Since August, the US military has stolen Syrian oil at least eight times, causing an energy shortage in Syria. The Syrian government and people have repeatedly condemned this act of the United States and accused it of seriously aggravating the humanitarian disaster in Syria.


Waysand, chief executive of Engie, a famous French energy company, said the company was negotiating a long-term natural gas contract with the Algerian national oil company. France's natural gas reserves in winter are more abundant than in the same period in previous years.


Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk 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.

The development of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will continue to dominate the commodity prices such as the titanium carbide in the future. If the conflict eases or cools, Russia and Ukraine go back to negotiate, commodity prices would fall. However, if the situation between Russia and Ukraine deteriorates further, or evolves into a full-scale war, the price of the titanium carbide is predicted to see further improvement over the coming days.
