What material is Vanadium carbide?


What’s VN powder?

Vanadium carbonide has 2 crystal structures. First, V3N is a hexagonal crystal structure. This crystal structure exhibits an extreme high hardness and microhardness. Unmeasurable melting points. Second, VN is a density 6.13. Each has high wear resistance. Take the example of the construction industry. The vanadium/nitrogen alloying technique produces a three-grade of steel bars. It not only increases the safety and earthquake resistance but it also helps to save 10% – 15% steel. This technology alone could save approximately 7.5million tons of steel bars, 12.4million tonnes iron concentrate, 6.6 millions tons of coal and 3.3 million tones of related raw materials each year in China. You also get the double benefit of resource conservation as well as environmental protection.


Vanadium caride uses

Vanadium-nitride makes steelmaking more efficient than the high vanadium ferrous additive. As an additive to vanadium, vanadium-nitride’s nitrogen can stimulate vanadium’s precipitation. This will make vanadium particles smaller and improve the formability and welding of steel. To produce semiconductor films that are wear resistant and durable, they can also be used as raw materials in cemented caride. The new, efficient vanadium-alloy additive is capable of producing high-strength and low-alloy steel products like high-strength steel bars, non-quenched tempered steel, highspeed tool steel, or high-strength steel pipeline. Vanadium/nitrogen alloy is able to strengthen and refine grain better than ferrovanadium. It can also save 30 – 50% vanadium and significantly improve steel strength. Vanadium-nitrogen alloy is used often as a raw material for cemented carbide in order to create wear-resistant and semiconductor films.
Addition of vanadium nutride to steel may improve steel’s mechanical properties such as toughness, strength and thermal fatigue resistance.
Addition of vanadium-nitrogen alloy can reduce costs by saving 30-40% on vanadium additon. The vanadium-nitrogen alloy can be used for structural steel, tool and pipe steel, as well as cast iron.
High-strength high-alloy steel that is vanadium/nitrogen-alloyed can perform both effective vanadium/nitrogen microalloying. It also promotes the precipitation and oxidization of carbon, vanadium and other nitrogen compounds.


The chemical characteristics of VN powder


It is a black cubic crystal. It is made up of 19.08% carbon. It’s melting point is 2810; its boiling point 3900 and relative density 5.77. You can dissolve it in water, acidic cold, acidic hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. It can also be melted using potassium nitrate. Chemical corrosion is not possible because of its chemical properties.
