Boron Carbide
from Advanced Abrasives Corp.

Boron Carbide Powder. Boron carbide (B4C) with a Mohs hardness of 9.5 is second only to cubic boron nitride (cBN) and so makes an excellent lower cost alternative abrasive to cBN and diamond. Also, boron carbide is excellent for absorbing neutron radiation without forming long lived radionuclides... [See More]
