About Boron Carbide:
Boron carbide (chemical formula approximately B4C) with CAS 12069-32-8 is an extremely hard boron–carbon ceramic and covalent material used in tank armor, bulletproof vests, engine sabotage powders, as well as numerous industrial applications. With a Vickers Hardness of >30 GPa, it is one of the hardest known materials, behind cubic boron nitride and diamond.

Application Boron Carbide:
The ability of boron carbide to absorb neutrons without forming long-lived radionuclides makes it attractive as an absorbent for neutron radiation arising in nuclear power plants and from anti-personnel neutron bombs. Nuclear applications of boron carbide include shielding, control rod and shut down pellets. Within control rods, boron carbide is often powdered, to increase its surface area.
Storage Condition of Boron Carbide Powder:
Damp reunion will affect Boron Carbide powder dispersion performance and using effects, therefore,Boron Carbide Powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in cool and dry room, the Boron Carbide Powder can not be exposure to air. In addition, the Boron Carbide powder should be avoided under stress.
