Global Tantalum Carbide powder market trend 2024-2030 What is Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder? by Newsen-mcafee

Hasad Foods, the agricultural investment arm of Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, said the government would increase its grain reserves from 250,000 tons to 300,000 tons in the near future, which is enough to feed the population for six months.  

With a lot of deserts, Qatar suffers from water shortages, and Qatar depends on food imports for a long time. Recently, the ongoing tension in Ukraine has caused global food supply tension and rising prices.

In addition to that, the geopolitical situation also affects the supply and prices of many commodities like the Tantalum Carbide powder.

Introduction to Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder
Tantalum carbide or TaC is a light brown metallic cubic crystal powder, belonging to the sodium chloride cubic crystal system. The density is 14.3g/cm3.
Insoluble in water, insoluble in inorganic acid, soluble in hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid mixed acid and decomposition. It has strong oxidation resistance and is easily melted and decomposed by potassium pyrosulfate. Has high conductivity, and resistance of 30Ω at room temperature, showing superconductivity.
Tantalum carbide is used for powder metallurgy, cutting tools, fine ceramics, chemical vapor deposition, hard wear-resistant alloy cutting tools, molds, and additives for wear and corrosion resistance structural components to improve the toughness of alloys. The sintered body of tantalum carbide shows a golden color and can be used as watch decoration.

Preparation Methods of Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder
1. In industry, mix tantalum pentoxide powder with solid carbon ball mills, get the mixture reduced and carburized in a non-oxidizing atmosphere (mainly vacuum and argon atmosphere) at 1700, to prepare TaC powder with a particle size greater than 2μm.
2. Nano tantalum carbide powder was prepared by heat treatment in the non-oxidizing atmosphere with the liquid precursor method. 5mL of anhydrous ethanol was added into a small beaker containing 0.50gTaCL5, and stirred evenly with a glass rod. Then, it was put into an ultrasonic cleaner with a heating temperature of 55 and a working frequency of 40kHz, ultrasonic power was 80W. After ultrasonic oscillation for 5-10min, 0.10g nano-activated carbon was added, and the oscillation continued for 15-20min. Pour it into the crucible and coat it evenly on the inner wall, and dry it with a hot fan. The crucible with the sample was placed in a vacuum hot pressing furnace, and high-temperature treatment was carried out at 1300 in a vacuum of 100Pa or hydrogen atmosphere; Or at 1400 in argon atmosphere, holding time is 0.5h, the heating rate is 20/min. After the experiment, brush the products in the crucible with a brush. 
3. Heat in the air to convert to tantalum pentoxide. Can be fused with potassium pyrosulfate.  By metal tantalum and carbon or tantalum pentoxide and black in an inert atmosphere heated to 1900 reaction prepared.
4. Use tantalum pentoxide and methane as the reaction gas, argon as the carrier, using silicon carbide resistance from the external radiation heating, carbonization, or tantalum pentoxide mixed with carbon black, pressurized powder molding, heating in hydrogen or vacuum.
 

Applications of Tantalum Carbide TaC Powder
It is widely used in industry and the military. In cemented carbide, it is widely used as a kind of additive. Its main function is to improve the high-temperature strength of cemented carbide and inhibit the growth of tungsten carbide particles. 
In cutting tools, used as a hard coating to increase the chemical resistance and wear resistance of the base metal; 
In the military, it can be used as a coating for jet engine turbine blades and rocket nozzles, which can significantly improve their ablative resistance and prolong their service life. 
Because of its good conductivity, it can also be used as electrode material, using electric discharge wire cutting into complex shapes; 
And as the second phase particle reinforced metal matrix composites, it can be used in aerospace, metallurgy, building materials, electric power, hydropower, mining, and other fields.

Gas supplies have been in short supply because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.  Combined with the situation that other renewable sources cannot produce enough electricity, electricity prices have soared in many parts all over the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the Tantalum Carbide powder would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
