Iron Carbide Powder Fe3C known as cementite used in machinery manufacturing

Brief Description of Iron Carbide Powder

Iron carbide is an intermetallic compound of iron and carbon,more precisely an intermediate transition metal carbide with the formula Fe3C.

By weight, it is 6.67% carbon and 93.3% iron. It has an orthorhombic crystal structure.

It is a hard, brittle material, normally classified as a ceramic  in its pure form, and is a frequently found and important constituent in ferrous metallurgy .

While iron carbide is present in most steels and cast irons, it is produced as a raw material in the iron carbide process, which belongs to the family of alternative ironmaking technologies.

Pure form of Iron Carbide Powder

Cementite changes from ferromagnetic to paramagnetic at its Curie temperature  of approximately 480 K.

A natural iron carbide (containing minor amounts of nickel and cobalt) occurs in iron meteorites 

As carbon is one of the possible minor light alloy components of metallic planetary cores, the high-pressure/high-temperature properties of cementite (Fe3C) as a simple proxy for cohenite are studied experimentally.

The figure shows the compressional behaviour at room temperature.

1: May I get one sample before placing order?
Re: Yes, we’d like to provide sample for you. For those normal products, you just need to bear the freight; for those high value products, you just need to freight and a little product cost. When we both cooperate for some times or when you are our VIP customer, free sample will be offered when you need.
2: How and when can I get my goods after payment?
Re: For small quantity products, they will be delivered to you by international courier(DHL, FedEx, T/T, EMS, etc.) or by air. Usually it will cost 2-5 days that you can get the goods after delivery.
For large quantity products, It will cost days to weeks to come to your destination port, which depends on where the port is.
3: Is there any possible to use my appointed label or package?
