Global TaC powder market trend 2025-2030 Applications of Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder by Newsworldwidehomestay

The price of nickel and stainless steel rose together. Nickel afternoon hand in hand with stainless steel together turn red up. Due to the temporary easing of geopolitical risks, risk assets are now picking up, nonferrous metals, stock markets, and so on have risen, the overall mood has temporarily improved. Ore prices are strong, the overlay of the epidemic on spot logistics or the formation of a certain impact. Phase, nickel and stainless steel materials to maintain high wide concussion pattern.

Nickel prices based on low inventory, tight supply and demand will still show high wide fluctuations. In addition, the current LME has low liquidity, so its sensitivity to capital will remain relatively high. Shanghai nickel-wide fluctuations are expected to continue in the 200,000-250,000 yuan wide repeated fluctuation trend. While stainless steel is affected by the stronger nickel pig iron, the cost support continues, but note that under the current demand is not effectively released, the upward space may also be affected, the stage is expected to fluctuate between 20000 and 22,000 yuan. The price of nickel produced such fluctuations, indicating that the price of the TaC powder may also be affected to a certain extent.

Introduction to Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder
Tantalum carbide is a kind of transition metal carbide. Black or dark brown metallic powder, cubic crystal system, hard.

Applications of Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder
Tantalum carbide is mainly used for cemented carbide, capacitors, electronic devices, high-temperature components, chemical equipment, and armor piercing shells.

1. Cemented carbide 
Tantalum carbide plays an important role in cemented carbide. It improves the properties of the alloy by improving the fiber structure and phase transformation dynamics, making the alloy have higher strength, phase stability, and processing deformation ability.  Tantalum carbide has a very high melting point (4000) and good thermodynamic stability. Tantalum is particularly effective in promoting nucleation and preventing carbon precipitation from nucleated brittle films formed during late solidification. Its main function is to prevent cemented carbide grain from growing up. In addition, it forms a third dispersion phase with TiC besides WC and Co, which significantly increases the thermal shock resistance, crescent hole wear resistance, and oxidation resistance of cemented carbide, and improves its redness and hardness. 
TaC is added into the alloy in different ways, which will greatly affect the properties of the alloy. On the other surface, the TiC-TaC-WC core phase formed by adding TaC to the alloy as TiC-TaC-WC solid solution has a larger sub-crystal size and smaller microscopic strain than the TiC-TaC-WC core phase, and the former one has better physical and mechanical properties and longer cutting life. 
 
2. Electronics industry 
In recent years, transition metal carbides have attracted much attention due to their chemical stability, high hardness, strong oxidation and corrosion resistance, low resistivity, and many other advantages. Carbide nanomaterials show great potential in metal coatings, tools, machine parts, and composites. Among all the carbide nanomaterials, silver carbide is one of the most popular materials, and also one of the materials with the greatest potential. Tantalum carbide not only inherits many advantages of carbide nanomaterials, but also has its own unique side, such as high hardness (Mohs hardness is 9-10 at room temperature, high melting point (about 3880), high Young's modulus (283-550 GPa), strong conductivity (conductivity is 32.7-117.4μ ω ·cm at 25), high-temperature superconductivity (10.5K), strong resistance to chemical decay and thermal shock, and high catalytic activity for ammonia decomposition and hydrogen separation. 
At present, tantalum carbide powder and whisk tantalum carbide have been prepared by means of carbothermic reduction, thermal plasma, solvothermal, sol-gel, microwave heating, alkali reduction, self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, and high-frequency induction heating sintering.
 
3. Superalloys
Among carbides, the best melting resistance is tantalum carbide (TaC) (melting point 3890) and hafnium carbide (HfC) (melting point 3880), followed by zirconium carbide (ZrC) (melting point 3500). These materials have excellent mechanical properties at high temperatures, far exceeding the best polycrystalline inks. Tantalum carbide, in particular, is the only material that maintains certain mechanical properties over the temperature range of 2900 to 3200. However, the disadvantage of tantalum carbide is that it is very sensitive to thermal shock, and the low thermal conductivity and high thermal expansion coefficient of carbide become the biggest obstacle to the application of aerospace materials. The addition of tantalum carbide to carbon/carbon composites will have higher thermal conductivity and lower thermal expansion conditions, and exert the oxidation resistance and ablative resistance of refractory metals.

Commodities such as crude oil, wheat, cotton, and nickel have rallied since Russia's "special military operations" began in late February. On the last trading day of this quarter, commodities were on track for their biggest gain since 1990. For this reason, it is expected that the price of the TaC powder will continue to increase.
