Global Tantalum Carbide market trend 2025-2027 Two production methods for tantalum carbide (TaC) by Newsstrikevector

Risk aversion plunged on the positive news of the Russia-Ukraine talks. After several days of rising oil prices, the price of precious metals continued to fall. Domestic futures markets remain stable for the time being.

Back in international markets, WTI crude futures briefly dipped below $100 a barrel, while Brent crude hit its lowest intraday level in nearly two weeks. Spot gold briefly fell below $1,900 an ounce. Comex gold futures closed down 1.1 percent at $1,918.4 an ounce. Comex silver futures closed down 1.14 percent at $24.91 an ounce. "Recently, crude oil prices have been extremely sensitive to changes in geopolitical news." Traders believe that the current oil price is still in the broad impact, Ukraine will still be a premium in the case, although the market further decline, but should not be too pessimistic, it is recommended to wait and see for the time being. The Ukrainian premium is still there and there will be some volatility in the Tantalum Carbide market.

Overview of Tantalum Carbide(TaC)

Tantalum carbide (TaC) forms a series of binary compounds of tantalum and carbon with the empirical formula TaCx, where x typically varies between 0.4 and 1. They are extremely hard, brittle, refractory ceramic materials with metallic conductivity. They appear as brown-grey powders, usually sintered.

Tantalcarbide is a natural form of tantalum carbide. It is a cubic, extremely rare mineral. The TaC x compound has a cubic (rock salt) crystal structure with x = 0.7–1.0; the lattice parameter increases with x. There are two main crystalline forms of TaC 0.5. The more stable has a cadmium iodide-resistant triangular structure, which transforms to a hexagonal lattice with no long-range order in carbon atoms when heated to about 2000 °C.

An important cermet material, tantalum carbide is used commercially in tool tips for cutting applications and is sometimes added to tungsten carbide alloys. The melting point of tantalum carbide peaks at around 3880°C, depending on purity and measurement conditions; this value is the highest among binary compounds. Only tantalum hafnium carbide may have a slightly higher melting point, around 3942 °C, while hafnium carbide has a melting point comparable to that of TaC.

Production method of tantalum carbide (TaC)

TaC powders of the desired composition are prepared by heating a mixture of tantalum and graphite powders in vacuum or in an inert gas atmosphere (argon). Heating at about 2000 °C using a furnace or arc melting unit. Another technique is the reduction of tantalum pentoxide with carbon at a temperature of 1500–1700 °C in a vacuum or hydrogen atmosphere. This method was used to obtain tantalum carbide in 1876, but it lacked control over the stoichiometry of the product. TaC has been reported to be produced directly from the element by self-propagating high temperature synthesis.

Application of Tantalum Carbide(TaC)

Tantalum carbide(TaC)powder is insoluble in water, almost insoluble in inorganic acid, soluble in mixed acid of hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid, and can be decomposed. Strong anti-oxidation, easily melted and decomposed by potassium pyrosulfate. The resistance is 30Ω at room temperature, showing superconductivity. (TaC) can be used in powder metallurgy, cutting tools, fine ceramics, chemical vapor deposition, hard wear-resistant alloy tools, tools, molds and wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant structural parts to improve the toughness of the alloy. The tantalum carbide (TaC) body is golden yellow and can be used as a decoration for the watch.

It is a heavy brown powder, usually processed by sintering, and is an important cermet material. Sometimes used as a microcrystalline additive for tungsten carbide alloys.

Tantalum carbide(TaC) is an ideal material for aircraft and rockets in the aerospace industry due to its melting point, hardness, elastic modulus, thermal conductivity, shock resistance and chemical stability.

Europe has been facing the gas shortage problem since the second half of 2021. The worsening situation in Russia and Ukraine has reduced Russian gas shipments to Europe, leading to a doubling of European gas prices. Energy shortages have sent electricity prices soaring. For these reasons, it is predicted that the price of the Tantalum Carbide will continue to increase.
