Global aluminum boride market trend 2022-2029 What is Aluminum Diboride AlB2 Powder? by Newsseguesec

From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers. 

Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the aluminum boride. 

Introduction to Aluminum Diboride AlB2 Powder
Aluminum diboride or Aluminum boride, AlB2 is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula AlB2. It is a binary compound formed by aluminum and boron elements. It is a grey-red solid and insoluble in water at room temperature and pressure. When heated, it loses surface gloss, stabilizes in cold dilute acid, and decomposes in hot hydrochloric and nitric acid.
Aluminum diboride is made by mixing fine powder of aluminum and boron and reacting it with heat. It is one of two compounds of aluminum and boron, the other being AlB12, and they are commonly known as aluminum boride.
Aluminum boride is considered hazardous because it reacts with acid and hydrogen to produce toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid with borane and aluminum chloride released.
Structures of Aluminum Diboride AlB2
The structure of aluminum boride is similar to that of metal interdides in that its structure depends mainly on the crystal structure of aluminum and boron rather than on their valence relationship. The borides of aluminum are AlB2, AlB4, and AlB12. The diboride AlB2 can be formed by the reaction of two elemental substances above 600. It is a layered structure in which Al atoms directly overlap (A, A) and B atoms fill the triangular column formed by the direct overlap of Al atoms, that is, the boron layer is located between the two aluminum layers. The boron layer has a similar structure to graphite. The boron atoms are connected in a hexagonal network. Each B atom is 0.173nm away from the other three B atoms, and six Al atoms are connected to B, which occupy the apex of the triangular column.  AlB2 can be dissolved in dilute hydrochloric acid to produce a reductive solution that may contain HB(OH)+3. AlB2 is insoluble in dilute sulfuric acid but soluble in nitric acid. AlB12 was decomposed by AlB2 at 920

Physicochemical Properties and Applications of Aluminum Diboride AlB2 Powder
AlB2 single crystal exhibits metallic conductivity along an axis parallel to the hexagonal base plane. Boron - aluminum composite aluminum or aluminum alloy reinforced with boron fiber or protective coating boron fiber. The volume content of boron fiber is generally about 45%~55%. It has low specific gravity and high mechanical properties. The longitudinal tensile strength and elastic modulus of the unidirectionally reinforced boron-aluminum composite are about 1.2~1.7GPa and 200~240GPa depending on the process and material. The longitudinal specific elastic modulus and specific strengths are about 3~5 times and 3~4 times of titanium alloy duralumin and alloy steel respectively.  It has good fatigue performance and high strength under 400.
It has been applied to fan blades of turbojet engines and structural parts of aviation, aerospace, and artificial satellites. The hot pressing diffusion bonding method is used to manufacture plate, profile, and more complex shape parts. Continuous casting can also be used to manufacture various profiles.
Aluminum boride can be used in ceramics, medical equipment, nuclear energy, refractory ceramics, and other fields.

Since the beginning of this year, China's macro policies have made continuous efforts to stabilize economic growth. America and Europe are raising interest rates to control inflation. On March the European Central Bank left its three key interest rates unchanged and began to scale back its asset-purchase programme. Then the Federal Reserve raised the target range of the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to 0.25%-0.5%. The accelerated tightening of monetary policies in the US and Europe pushed capital back to the US and increased interest rates, which will definitely increase the risk of RMB depreciation and capital outflow. The price and market of the aluminum boride will also be affected, resulting in a range of fluctuations. You are welcome to contact us for the latest quotation of aluminum boride.
