Boron carbide (B4C) is the third hardest material at room temperature, surpassing even diamond and cubic boron nitride at temperatures over 1100 °C. It has many other attractive properties such as good wear resistance, high modulus, high chemical and thermal stability. These properties make boron carbide a promising candidate as hard and protective coatings for cutting tools, automobile parts, hard disk drives and other wear–resistance applications. Despite of these significant properties… CONTINUE READING
