Tantalum carbide Nanopowder (TaC) Properties and Applications:

Tantalum carbide (TaC) is an extremely hard (Mohs hardness 9-10) refractory ceramic material, commercially used in tool bits for cutting tools.

The hardness is exceeded by diamond.

It is a heavy, brown powder usually processed by sintering, and an important cermet material.

It is sometimes used as a fine-crystalline additive to tungsten carbide alloys.

Tantalum carbide has the distinction of being the stoichiometric binary compound with the highest known melting point, at 4150 K (3880°C) and boiling point, at 5500 oC.

The substoichiometric compound TaC0.89 has a higher melting point, near 4270 K (4000°C).

Tantalum Carbide Coating

The melting point of Tantalum Carbides peaks at about 3880°C depending on purity and has one of the highest melting points among the binary compounds.

Definition: Tantalum Carbide is a compound of tantalum and carbon with a chemical formula TaC.

The coating is an extremely hard, refractory ceramic material, with metallic electrical conductivity.

This makes it an attractive alternative when higher temperature demands exceed the performance capabilities of CVD Silicon carbide, coated graphites.

TaC, coating resists chemical attack by corrosive liquids and gases at very high temperatures.

They are finding increasing acceptance in sealing and protecting graphite hardware from hot ammonia, hydrogen, hydrochloric acid, and molten metals used in compound semiconductors epitaxial processes such as MOCVD and LPE.

The following characteristics of the carbide coating provide long life and low particle generation.
