Vanadium Carbide

Vanadium carbide is dark gray powder, which contains C 19.08% normally. It is belong to NaCl cubic crystal systems. VC is stable at room temperature and pressure. It dissolve in nitric acid and molten potassium nitrate, however not dissolve in cold water, hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. Vanadium pentoxide, vanadium tetrachloride, vanadium metal powder or vanadium hydride all can be the raw material.

Applications

Vanadium carbide powder acts as grain refiner in hard alloys, cutting tools and steel-making, which can improve alloys propertyobviously. It is also raw material for preparing wear-resistance thin film and semiconductor film. It is raw material for fine ceramics too.
