Boron-nitride ceramic consists of both boron (or nitrogen) and is thermally and chemically resistant. Three forms of Boron Nitride are commonly found: hexagonalboron nutride (hBBN) ; cubicboronnitride (c-BN), ; and WUrtziteboronnitride (w-BN). H-BN, which is both stable and soft, is used to lubricate cosmetics and as an additive. Polymorphism can also occur in other forms, like aBN, T-BN or rBN.

Hexagonalboron nitride
Hexagonal, boron nitride can be synthesized at high temperatures by ammonolysis (nitridation) of boron dioxide. HexagonalBN exhibits a similar microstructure as graphite. This material is excellent for lubricating because it has a lamellar microstructure with a layered lattice. It can withstand sintering and most commonly formed through hot pressing.

Structurally, the h-BN powder is white and greasy. It is very similar in other ways to graphite. The HBN crystal structure hexagonal. The BN molecule is partly ionic which decreases its electrical conductivity. Both c-BN as well as h-BN demonstrated high chemical and thermochemical stability. However, hBN was more stable than the c-BN. This means that it does not degrade at higher temperatures (1000degC for air), 1400degC for vacuum and 2850degC for inert atmosphere. h-BN thermal conductivity , is therefore very close to graphene. It is one reason h-BN is one of the most important ceramic materials.

H-BN is easily machined by traditional metal cutting techniques when it’s hot pressing. Another key feature of h-BN is its high dielectric strength, high volume resistance and exceptional chemical inertia.

What’s a h-BN?
BN is used in the production of graphene electronic products as a substrate. It’s used in the manufacture of dielectrics that will be used to produce nano electronic devices.
It’s used for high-quality and low permittivity railing materials in two-dimensional rampant vertical tunneling devices.
The thinnest hBN is used to protect against corrosion and oxidation.
H-BN can effectively be used to detect gas. This material can be used to detect gases such as ammonia, ethanol and other compounds.

Cubic bore nitride
C-BN is second in hardness to diamond. C-BN is made of hexagonal BN at high pressure and high temperatures. Although the hBN material is very similar to granite, the cBN (another carbon allotrope) behaves in a similar way. Cubic boron-nitride has the same characteristics as diamond. There has been a significant increase in C-BN commercial production over the past several decades.

In terms of hardness, the c-BN grinding material is more durable than conventional materials such as SiC or Al2O3. C-BN’s grinding wheel has a higher output efficiency than traditional abrasive wheels.

What’s a c-BN?
C-BN is used for cutting tools.
Cubic Boron Nitride can be used to insulate electronic devices. C-BN can be described as a III-V semiconductor material. This compound is excellent as an insulator because it has a large band gap.
C-BN is well-known for its wear resistance, inertia and ability to react with reactive chemicals.
C-BN has been used in the development of protective coatings, due to its excellent hardness as well as wear resistance.
Because of its chemical inertia, boron-nitride is often suitable for use as a protective liner to thermocouple jackets. Crucibles can also be used.
