Global Titanium Carbide powder market trend 2023-2027 What is Titanium Carbide TiC Powder? by Newstomfragerforum

In terms of international pricing benchmarks, according to the CP data released by Saudi Aramco, the propane contract price (CP) in March was $895 / ton, up $120 / ton from the previous month, up 15.48% from the previous month and up 43.20% from the same period last year. Butane contract price (CP) in March was 920 US dollars/ton, up 145 US dollars/ton compared with last month, up 18.71% month-on-month, up 54.62% compared with the same period last year; In March, CP in Saudi Arabia rose sharply, giving a strong boost to the international and domestic LPG market. Benchmark LPG prices are higher than a year ago as the economy continues to recover and demand for crude oil continues to repair. According to this trend, the market price of Titanium Carbide powder will also be affected to a certain extent.

Introduction to Titanium Carbide TiC Powder
The chemical formula for titanium carbide is TiC. It is a steel-gray crystal with a metallic luster. It has thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity, and its electrical conductivity decreases with the increase of temperature, so it shows the property of medal. It is a hard, high melting point compound, second only to diamond in hardness, with a microhardness of 2850 kg/mm2. The lattice constant a=4.173×10-8cm. Melting point 3150, boiling point 4820, relative density 4.9. TiN and TiO have the same lattice and the same parameters, so a series of continuous solid solutions can be formed between them. When heated to above 1500 in H2 gas, C removal gradually occurs. The mixture of Ti(C, N) carbon nitride reacts with N2 gas above 1200 to form a variable composition. The oxidation rate of TiC is slow at 800, but the powder TiC can be burned in O2 at 600 to generate TiO2 and CO2. At 1200, TiO2 and CO are produced by reaction with O2 gas. It does not interact with water, but can react with water vapor to generate TiO2, CO, and H2 at temperatures above 700. It does not react with CO, but reacts with CO2 at 1200 to generate TiO2 and CO. Insoluble in hydrochloric acid and lye, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia.

Preparation Methods of Titanium Carbide TiC Powder
1. Carbothermic reduction 
TiO2 was reduced with carbon black at 1700-2100, and the chemical reaction formula was: TiO2(S)+ 3C(s)=TiC(S)+2CO(g). 
2. Direct carbonization method 
TiC was prepared by the reaction of Ti powder and carbon powder. 
Due to the difficulty in preparing submicron Ti powder, the application of this method is limited. The above reaction takes 5-20 hours to complete, the reaction process is difficult to control, and the reactants agglomerate seriously. It requires further grinding to prepare fine TiC powder. In order to obtain a purer product, it is necessary to purify the fine powder after ball milling by chemical method. 
3. Chemical vapor deposition 
The synthesis method utilizes the reaction between TiCl4, H2 and C. 
The reactants react with hot tungsten or carbon monofilaments. TiC crystals grow directly on the monofilaments. The yield and sometimes even quality of TiC powders synthesized by this method are strictly limited. 
4. Sol-gel method 
The invention relates to a method for preparing small particle size products by fully mixing and dispersing materials with solution. It has the advantages of good chemical uniformity, small powder size, and narrow distribution, low heat treatment temperature, but the synthesis process is complex, drying shrinkage is large.
5. Microwave method 
Using nano TiO2 and carbon black as raw materials, using the principle of carbon thermal reduction reaction, using microwave energy to heat the material. In fact, the dielectric loss of materials in the high-frequency electric field is used to convert microwave energy into heat energy, so that nano TiO2 and carbon can synthesize TiC. 

Applications of Titanium Carbide TiC Powder
1. Used in cutting tools, wear-resistant coating, mold manufacturing, and other fields;  
2. Raw materials for the production of ceramics and hard metallurgical parts by powder metallurgy, such as drawing film, hard alloy die, etc. Polyphase ceramics can be applied to hard cutting tools, military armor materials, aerospace components, such as gas tanks, engines, nozzle lining, turbine rotors, blades, and structural components in nuclear reactors; 
3. As a coating material, it can be used in diamond coating, tritium anti-coating in the fusion reactor, electric contact coating, excavator cutter coating, as well as foam ceramics, infrared radiation ceramics, etc.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the Titanium Carbide powder may keep rising.
