The role and properties of silicon hexaboride

Europe's largest economy, Germany, recently activated an emergency plan to manage gas supplies that the natural gas could be rationed if supplies are disrupted or disrupted by a stand-off over Russian demands to pay for fuel in rubles.  

German Vice-Chancellor, minister of economy and climate protection, said Germany's gas supplies were secure for now, but he urged consumers and businesses to reduce consumption, saying "every kilowatt of electricity counts." 

Germany's gas network regulator can ration gas if supplies run short. Plants would be the first to be affected. Special treatment will be provided to private families, hospitals, and other important institutions.  

Half of Germany's 41.5 million households use natural gas for heating, and industry consumption accounts for a third of the country's 100 billion cubic meters of gas demand in 2021.  

The price of many energy and commodities like the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder could be affected.


Overview of Silicon Hexaboride SiB6 Powder

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder is a shiny black-gray powder, molecular formula: SiB6, molecular weight: 92.952 nanometers Silicon boride has high purity, small particle size distribution and high specific surface area. The melting point is as high as 2230°C. Insoluble in water, anti-oxidation, chemical-resistant, with high chemical resistance, especially in terms of high thermal shock and stability; silicon boride has higher grinding efficiency than boron carbide, and can be used as abrasive, grinding and Different sintering conditions of engineering ceramics, such as nozzles and gas turbine blades, and the aggregation of sealing rings affect the dispersion performance and application effect of SiB6 powder. Therefore, silicon boride SiB6 powder should be sealed in a vacuum package and stored in a cool and dry room. Silicon boride SiB6 powder should not be exposed to air. Also, the use of SiB6 powder under pressure should be avoided.

The silicon hexaboride SiB6 crystal structure includes interconnected icosahedrons (polyhedra with 20 faces), icosahedral hexahedra (polyhedra with 26 faces), and isolated silicon and boron atoms. Compared to hexaboride, it is metastable. However, they can be prepared because of the relative ease of crystal nucleation and growth.

When heated in air or oxygen, the surface of SiB6 is oxidized and corroded by high-temperature boiling sulfuric acid and fluorine, chlorine, and bromine. Silicon boride is conductive. Hexaborides have a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a large nuclear cross section for thermal neutrons.

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder applications

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder can be used as various standard abrasives to grind cemented carbide. It is also used as engineering ceramic materials, sandblasting nozzles, manufacturing gas engine blades and other special-shaped sintered parts and seals. Used as an antioxidant for refractory materials.

Prior to the impact of COVID-19 on the chemicals and materials industry and the price of the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder, many industry observers expected low to flat growth in 2021 in all regions outside Asia, with many countries seeing slower growth compared to recent years. Operational excellence has long been a hallmark of the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder chemical industry, and many companies are financially able to withstand short-term dips in end-market demand due to rapid leverage from reduced capex on hand.

The analysis shows that, whatever the final course of the pandemic, we can expect the inevitable long-term effects. Workplaces are expected to slowly return to pre-COVID-19 practices. Companies investing in enterprise-wide digital initiatives saw these "payoffs" in the early pandemic environment.
