Global Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder market trend 2023-2027 The role and properties of silicon hexaboride by Newsmarco-berti

Gold is a high-quality hedge hedging tool, favored by investors. Especially in recent years, with the increasing instability of the world economy, gold has become one of the preferred asset allocations of investors because of its functions of hedging and fighting inflation. 

Earlier, the worsening situation in Ukraine sent gold prices soaring to a two-year high of $2,070 an ounce. But gold, along with other commodities, fell back last week as conditions changed and bulls took profits, hitting a low of $1,895 an ounce. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder prices. 

According to China Business News, Goldman Sachs raised its gold price forecast in early March, considering Asian buyers' gold consumption demand, investment demand and central bank gold purchase demand continue to rise. Three -, six - and 12-month targets were raised to $2,300, $2,500 and $2,500 an ounce, respectively, from $1,950, $2,050 and $2,150. The last time all three accelerated was in 2010-11 when gold prices rose nearly 70%. 

The World Gold Council has also noted that global gold demand is at its highest level in nearly two years, which is linked to a recovery in consumption and consumer sentiment to combat inflation. 

Overview of Silicon Hexaboride SiB6 Powder

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder is a shiny black-gray powder, molecular formula: SiB6, molecular weight: 92.952 nanometers Silicon boride has high purity, small particle size distribution and high specific surface area. The melting point is as high as 2230°C. Insoluble in water, anti-oxidation, chemical-resistant, with high chemical resistance, especially in terms of high thermal shock and stability; silicon boride has higher grinding efficiency than boron carbide, and can be used as abrasive, grinding and Different sintering conditions of engineering ceramics, such as nozzles and gas turbine blades, and the aggregation of sealing rings affect the dispersion performance and application effect of SiB6 powder. Therefore, silicon boride SiB6 powder should be sealed in a vacuum package and stored in a cool and dry room. Silicon boride SiB6 powder should not be exposed to air. Also, the use of SiB6 powder under pressure should be avoided.

The silicon hexaboride SiB6 crystal structure includes interconnected icosahedrons (polyhedra with 20 faces), icosahedral hexahedra (polyhedra with 26 faces), and isolated silicon and boron atoms. Compared to hexaboride, it is metastable. However, they can be prepared because of the relative ease of crystal nucleation and growth.

When heated in air or oxygen, the surface of SiB6 is oxidized and corroded by high-temperature boiling sulfuric acid and fluorine, chlorine, and bromine. Silicon boride is conductive. Hexaborides have a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a large nuclear cross section for thermal neutrons.

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder applications

Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder can be used as various standard abrasives to grind cemented carbide. It is also used as engineering ceramic materials, sandblasting nozzles, manufacturing gas engine blades and other special-shaped sintered parts and seals. Used as an antioxidant for refractory materials.
