are compounds formed from boron and metals, but also widely include boron and metal-like and nonmetallic compounds. The preparation of borides usually requires a high temperature of 12002200℃. They can be made from boron and metals or their oxides, or from electrolytic borates.
is the most suitable material because of its hardness, chemical properties and heat resistance. For example, they are used in high-temperature furnaces, turbine blades, and loading decks. The most important boride is titanium boride (TiB2), which is characterized by high hardness, high freezing point and electrical conductivity above 3.200°C; It is used to assemble evaporating vessels. Different types of borides are often produced and supplied to different industries.
