Titanium Silicon Carbide (Titanium SiC2) is a ceramic material that has all the properties of metal, including electrical conductivity, heat transmission, workability, plasticity, etc. Ti3SiC2 exhibits the characteristics of metals, with good thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, low Vickers Hardness, high elastic modulus and ductility. It can be processed like metal and is plastic even at high temperatures. The fact that it is self-lubricating and has a lower coefficient of friction is even more important.
2. Ti3SiC2 Ceramics: Main Properties
Ti3SiC2 has the properties of both ceramics and metals. High elastic modulus reflects the properties of similar ceramics, and high melting points and temperature stability reflect ceramics with similar nature.
According to research on the damage resistance properties of Ti3SiC2, the sub-indentation shows a large pseudoplastic area. Ti3SiC2 absorbs energy through multiple mechanisms, including diffusion microcracks. This material type also has good self-lubricating qualities. This material can be used as a high-temperature structure, brush, self-lubricating, heat-exchange, etc. Other ceramic materials have a relatively low hardness. They also have low wear resistance.
Thirdly, the application and use of Ti3SiC2 layer ceramic materials
Material or components that are used in dentistry must not only be stable and resistant to long-term corrosion, but they also have to be workable and plastic. The biocompatibility of Ti3SiC2 allows it to be used in human tissue. Ti3SiC2 has the ability to be machined accurately into threads, without using lubricant. This allows it to be made into dental implants and restorations. Comparing Ti3SiC2 with zirconia, its elastic modulus (1.9x105MPa) is closer to enamel or dentin. This increases the potential of using it in porcelain dental crowns or post-propagating high temperature. Ti3SiC2 obtained by self-propagating heat has a porous texture, making it easier to organise and combine. Low coefficient of traction makes it easy to use in orthodontics for increased sliding and reduced friction resistance. The material must have corrosion resistance and oxidation protection to maintain its stability in an oral environment. Both this material and powder porcelain are ceramic materials. This means that the bonding is likely to be stronger than with metal and porcelain. The porcelain crowns are therefore more versatile.
The current Ti3SiC2 methods of preparation must be improved in order to get a pure Ti3SiC2 and better understand its characteristics. The biocompatibility, clinical feasibility and practicability of this material need to be confirmed in laboratory and clinic studies.
(2) Refractory Materials
As rapid firing technology is promoted in the ceramics industry, the cycle period for using kiln furnishings gets shorter and shorter. Also, the use conditions become more demanding. It is therefore necessary to improve the thermal resistance of kiln-furniture materials in order to meet the rapid fire technology of ceramic industry. Development requirements. Quality of kilns furniture is important as a type of advanced refractory materials. It has a great influence on the quality fired products. Thermal shock is not a problem for Ti3SiC2 and its unique layering structure and plasticity at high temperatures can help to reduce thermal stress. The material’s residual strength after thermal shock is still 300MPa. It can also handle a temperature change of 900. Ti3SiC2 ceramics have the advantage of being chemically resistant, easy to process, and having a relatively low cost. This makes it a perfect material for kiln furnishings.
The excellent properties of spherical aluminum in terms of electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties make it a popular choice for electronic semiconductor packaging.
