Application Tantalum Boride TaB2 powder :

Tantalum boride, which is composed of tantalum boron is a compound that is renowned for its extreme hardness. Tantalum diboride, due to its high degree of hardness, can be used in high temperature materials and abrasives as well wear-resistant coatings.
Tantalum diboride, a metallic luster crystalline material with high melting point and wear resistance, is hard. It is widely applied in ultra-high temperatures ceramic materials, hard material or composite materials reinforcement.
Tantalum Diboride has also thermal and electrical conductivity. It is used by the chemical industry, metallurgy and building materials.

Production Method of Tantalum Boride TaB2 powder :

The chlorination process uses tantalum powder and chlorine gas at a high-temperature reaction to produce tantalum trichloride and tetrachloride. Then, the mixture is separated and purified to obtain high-purity tantalum trichloride and tetrachloride. The advantages of this method are a simple process and low preparation cost. Still, much waste gas will be produced in the reaction process, which contains highly toxic substances that greatly harm the environment and human health. 

Molten salt electrolysis is the preparation of tantalum boride using a mixture of tantalum and borate in a molten salt electrolyte. The advantage of this method is that the reaction speed is fast and the product quality is high, but it needs to use a lot of energy, and the hydrogen chloride gas generated in the reaction process needs to be treated. Otherwise, it will pollute the environment. 

The high-temperature solid phase synthesis method is to heat the mixture of tantalum powder and boric acid or anhydride at high temperatures and react to produce tantalum boride. The advantages of this method are a simple preparation process and low energy consumption. Still, it requires many grinding equipment, and the reaction speed is slow, requiring several grinding and high-temperature heating.
