Calcium Boride Powder

Calcium boride is usually available immediately in most volumes. They can be considered forms of high purity, submicron, and nanopowder. Borides are hard materials with a high melting point and metal-like conductivity. They are stable to non-oxidizing acids but are decomposed into strong oxidizing agents and strong alkalis. The borides are used in semiconductors, superconductors, diamagnetic, paramagnetic, ferromagnetic, anti-ferromagnetic, turbine blades, and rocket nozzles. Recently it has been discovered that borides are superconducting and ultra-incompressible. Nano Research Elements produce many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec , ACS, Reagent and Technique Degree; Food, agricultural and pharmaceutical grade; Optical Grade, USP, and EP / BP (European Pharmacopoeia / British Pharmacopoeia) and follow applicable ASTM test standards. Typical and customized packages are available. There is further technical, research, and safety information (MSDS), as well as a reference calculator for converting relevant units.
