Aluminum Carbide

Aluminum carbide is little yellow-brown crystalline lump or  powder, which absorb moisture.  It is table when avoiding contact with moisture air, which is not soluble in acetone.  Aluminum metal powder and carbon powder are essential raw materials.

aluminum carbide particles,tiny dispersion in composite material of aluminum basis, could slow creep of it, especially when combine with silicon carbide particles.

Aluminum-Silicon Carbide alloy could be prepared by mechanical alloying, ball milling aluminum powder and graphite particles.

Aluminium carbide could be as abrasive particles for high-speed cutting tool. Its hardness equal to topaz.

Aluminium carbide is also raw material for production of fireworks as show effect of glowworm.


Aluminium carbide should store in cool, dry and ventilative  warehouse. keep temperature under 32℃ and relative humidity no more than 75%, avoiding fire, heat source.  Package should seal strictly. Keep it away from acid, avoiding blending reserve by all means.
