Family Overview. Boron carbide (B 4 C) is one of the world's hardest manufactured materials. Its strong chemical bonds and hard surface minimize wear in rigorous environments. Boron carbides are often used in ballistic armor, taking advantage of exceptional hardness and low density.
This method requires a slight excess of boron, as some boron is oxidized during boron carbide reduction. ZrC has also been observed as a product from the reaction, but if the reaction is carried out with 20–25% excess B 4 C, the ZrC phase disappears, and only ZrB 2 remains.
