LFA 1000 – Carbide Ceramics – Thermal Conductivity

Carbide Ceramics have a high thermal conductivity and are resistant against abrasion, corrosion and high temperatures. By combining different carbides, it is also possible to adapt the properties of the material to different applications and thus achieve for example a defined electrical conductivity or a high hardness. The application fields of carbide ceramics are mechanical, chemical, space and power engineering.

App. Nr. 02-007-006 LFA 1000 – Carbide Ceramics – Thermal Conductivity

Three different types of car­bides were measured by LFA to determine the thermal conduc­tivity. The uranium derivative (UC) shows a considerable low value of around 25 W/mK which is almost constant over the temperature range. Zirconium carbide (ZrC) shows an increasing trend, whereas silicon carbide (SiC) shows a decreasing thermal conductivity which approaches to a constant value at higher temperatures.
