Applications

Titanium boride applys to production of molten metal crucible and electrode of electrolytic tank due to its resistance corrosion from molten metal.

It is also kind of conductive ceramic material, which is one of main raw materials for conductive evaporation boat for vacuum coating purpose.

TiB2 is raw material for ceramic cutting tools and moulds, which apply to make knife, wortle, extrusion die, blast nozzle and sealing elements.

Titanium diboride could compound with TiC, TiN, SiC to form multielement composite ceramic material. It is for various high-temperature parts and function parts as high temperature crucible and engine parts. It is one of best protection material for Armor.

TiB2 is cathode coating for aluminium electrolysis cell. It is used in preparing thermal PTC ceramic material and soft PTC material. It is also great enhancer for Al, Fe, Cu and other metal materials.
