Fiven B4C - Boron Carbide
High-purity boron carbide powders down to submicron size
Boron carbide (B4C) is a material with unique properties that make it useful in a variety of applications. It is very hard and durable, making it a preffered choice for use in diverse industrial, military, and defense applications (i.e. armor plates for body armor or vehicle protection).
Fiven B4C comes with additional technical advantages:
- The unique boron carbide powder is protected from material oxidation during storage and transportation. The powder is not affected by oxygen, even over long periods of time. Such characteristic is achieved through a special packaging process and the preparation of the powder with a protective coating.
- Fiven B4C is produced using a specially developed treatment that virtually eliminates the presence of free carbon as graphite. Free carbon as graphite can cause defects or micro flaws in the finished part, so reducing its content in the starting material is a significant improvement for the performance of the manufactured pieces.
Fiven offers boron carbide in different particle sizes down to submicron and the material is also available as a composite mixes with SiC in various ratios.
