Global Cr3C2 Powder market trend 2023-2026 What is Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder? by Newsinwin-style

Koalas were declared endangered in eastern Australia on Friday, with more and more koalas dying from disease, habitat loss, and other threats. Earlier, the koala was considered a vulnerable species, and the Commonwealth Department of the Environment changed its protection level to endangered on the east coast of Queensland, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory. Many koalas in Australia are infected with chlamydia. The disease can cause blindness, infection, and infertility. Last year, the Australian Koala Foundation said Australia had lost about 30 percent of its koala population in the past three years. Without immediate action, the species could become extinct by 2050.
Unlike koalas, which are on the brink of extinction, the market demand for Cr3C2 Powder will grow substantially.

Introduction to Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder
Chromium carbide is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula Cr3C2 and the molecular weight is 180.01. It is gray powder with a rhombic system, A =2.821, B =5.52, C =11.46. The melting point is 1890 and the boiling point is 3800. The micro-Vickers hardness (load 50 g) is 2700kg/rnrn2, thermal expansion coefficient is 10.3×10-6/K.
It has properties of good wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and oxidation resistance in high-temperature environments (1000~1100). It belongs to a type of cermet.  Because of its special high-temperature performance, it is widely used as a thermal spraying material for the metal surface protection process and as an additive in cemented carbide industry. 
 

Physicochemical Properties of Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder
Chromium carbide has many excellent properties, such as strong chemical stability, high-temperature hardness, thermal hardness, acid and alkali corrosion resistance, good wear resistance, and it has a high melting point. When chromium carbide is used as inhibitors, it can effectively control the grain growth of cemented carbide. 
Moreover, chromium carbide is not only a good abrasion resistance of explosive bonding material additives, but also a high-quality cermet raw material, can also be used as a spraying powder, such as spraying powder at high temperature has good candle resistance, oxidation resistance, and wear resistance. It has been widely used in the metallurgical industry, electronic industry, high-temperature resistant coating, aerospace, and other fields.
In the field of cutting tools, chromium carbide usually plays an important role as a surface coating. In Fe-Cr-c alloy, chromium carbide is an important precipitated phase, which makes the material have excellent wear resistance.

Preparation Methods of Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder
Metal chromium powder carbonization method: 
325-mesh metal chromium powder was made by grinding carbon black at 13.5% ~ 64% (mass) ratio (more than the theoretical combined carbon content of 11.33%) with electrolytic chromium, and then used as raw material after dry mixing with a ball mill. Add 1% ~ 3% stearic acid as forming lubricant. Use pressure molding above 1 T/cm2. The pressurized molding powder into the graphite disc or crucible, with Taman furnace or induction heating furnace, in the hydrogen flow (hydrogen dew point at -35 or so), heated to 1500 ~ 1700, and keep 1h, so that chromium carbonization reaction, chromium carbide generation, after cooling, chromium carbide.
The reaction equation is:  3Cr + 2C → Cr3C2 
 

Applications of Chromium Carbide Cr3C2 Powder
1. Can be used as carbide additives (such as tungsten carbide-based carbide grain refiner), so as to be used in mining, mechanical processing, and other aspects. 
2. Can be used as welding material additives. The welding rod made of chromium carbide surfacing welding on the working surface of some mechanical equipment (such as coal mill, ball mill, jaw plate, etc.), can improve the service life of equipment several times more.
3. Used as thermal spraying materials used for metal surface protection process.
