It is obtained by the reaction of coke and boron oxide in an electric furnace. This preparation method is also the method adopted in current industrial production.
Since boron carbide has long been used as a coarse sand abrasive material. Since it has a high melting point and is not easily cast into an artificial product, it can be processed into a simple shape by melting the powder at a high temperature. Used for grinding, grinding, drilling and polishing of hard materials such as cemented carbide and gemstones.
