The role and properties of silicon hexaboride

From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers. 

Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder. 

Overview of Silicon Hexaboride SiB6 Powder

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder is a shiny black-gray powder, molecular formula: SiB6, molecular weight: 92.952 nanometers Silicon boride has high purity, small particle size distribution and high specific surface area. The melting point is as high as 2230°C. Insoluble in water, anti-oxidation, chemical-resistant, with high chemical resistance, especially in terms of high thermal shock and stability; silicon boride has higher grinding efficiency than boron carbide, and can be used as abrasive, grinding and Different sintering conditions of engineering ceramics, such as nozzles and gas turbine blades, and the aggregation of sealing rings affect the dispersion performance and application effect of SiB6 powder. Therefore, silicon boride SiB6 powder should be sealed in a vacuum package and stored in a cool and dry room. Silicon boride SiB6 powder should not be exposed to air. Also, the use of SiB6 powder under pressure should be avoided.

The silicon hexaboride SiB6 crystal structure includes interconnected icosahedrons (polyhedra with 20 faces), icosahedral hexahedra (polyhedra with 26 faces), and isolated silicon and boron atoms. Compared to hexaboride, it is metastable. However, they can be prepared because of the relative ease of crystal nucleation and growth.

When heated in air or oxygen, the surface of SiB6 is oxidized and corroded by high-temperature boiling sulfuric acid and fluorine, chlorine, and bromine. Silicon boride is conductive. Hexaborides have a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a large nuclear cross section for thermal neutrons.

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder applications

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder can be used as various standard abrasives to grind cemented carbide. It is also used as engineering ceramic materials, sandblasting nozzles, manufacturing gas engine blades and other special-shaped sintered parts and seals. Used as an antioxidant for refractory materials.

Since the beginning of this year, China's macro policies have made continuous efforts to stabilize economic growth. America and Europe are raising interest rates to control inflation. On March the European Central Bank left its three key interest rates unchanged and began to scale back its asset-purchase programme. Then the Federal Reserve raised the target range of the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to 0.25%-0.5%. The accelerated tightening of monetary policies in the US and Europe pushed capital back to the US and increased interest rates, which will definitely increase the risk of RMB depreciation and capital outflow. The price and market of the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder will also be affected, resulting in a range of fluctuations.
