What material is Vanadium carbide?


What’s VN powder?

Vanadium carbonide has 2 crystal structures. First, V3N is a hexagonal crystal structure. This crystal has an extreme high hardness and microhardness. Unmeasurable melting point. Second, VN is a density 613. A relative molecular weight 64.95 gives VN a cubic, face-centered crystal structure. With a microhardness about 1520HV. Each has high wear resistance. Take the example of the construction industry. The vanadium/nitrogen alloying technique produces a three-grade of steel bar that not only increases the safety of buildings and resists earthquakes but also helps to save 10% to 15% steel. The reduction of these steel bars can result in a saving of approximately 7.5 million tons, 12.4million tons iron concentrate, 6.6million tons coal and 3.3million tons related raw materials each year in China. While carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissions have been greatly decreased, the double benefit of resource conservation as well as environmental protection is realized.


Vanadium caride uses

Vanadium-nitride makes steelmaking more efficient than the high vanadium ferrous additive. As an additive to vanadium, vanadium-nitride’s nitrogen can stimulate vanadium’s precipitation. This will make vanadium particles smaller and improve the formability and welding of steel. To produce semiconductor films that are wear resistant and durable, they can also be used as the raw material for cemented caride. The new, efficient vanadium-alloy additive is capable of producing high-strength and low-alloy steel products like high-strength steel bars, non-quenched tempered steel, highspeed tool steel and highstrength steel pipeline. Vanadium/nitrogen alloy is able to strengthen and refine grain better than ferrovanadium. It can also save 30 – 50% vanadium and significantly improve steel strength. Vanadium-nitrogen alloy is used often as a raw material for cemented caride in order to create wear-resistant or semiconductor films.
Addition of vanadium nutride to steel may improve steel’s mechanical properties such as toughness, strength and thermal fatigue resistance.
Addition of vanadium-nitrogen alloy can reduce costs by saving 30-40% on vanadium additon. The vanadium-nitrogen alloy can be used for structural steel, pipe and tool steel as well as cast iron.
High-strength high-alloy steel can be made from vanadium/nitrogen alloy. It is capable of simultaneously carrying out vanadium and microalloying.


Chemical properties VN powder


It is a black cubic crystal. It is made up of 19.08% carbon. The melting point for this compound is 2810; the boiling point at 3900 and relative density 5.77. You can dissolve it in water, acidic cold, acidic hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. It can also be melted using potassium nitrate. Chemical corrosion is not possible because of its chemical properties.
