  • Aluminum Carbide Powder Typical Applications:

a) Aluminium carbide particles finely dispersed in aluminium matrix lower the tendency of the material to creep, especially in combination with silicon carbide particles.

b) An aluminium-aluminium carbide composite material can be made by mechanical alloying, by milling aluminium powder with graphite particles.

c) Aluminium carbide can be used as an abrasive in high-speed cutting tools. It has approximately the same hardness as topaz.

d) Aluminium carbide is also used in pyrotechnics, e.g. to achieve the firefly effect.
