New generation of composite materials made of cubic and nanocubic boron nitride and instruments of these composites
Cutting tools made of superhard cubic boron nitride nanopowder, second only to diamonds in hardness, will be used for rough, final, and extra-final finishes, primarily in mechanical and automotive engineering, mining, and the aerospace industry.
The improved physical properties of tools made with CBN nanopowder (microhardness, wear, and heat resistance) yield much better performance while reducing their cost of operation by as much as 60 percent.
The project has set up the complete production cycle from synthesis of CBN nanopowder to manufacturing of the cutting tools.
Areas of application
- Higher durability and resistance to abrasion
- Order of magnitude greater productivity from instruments of cubic boron nitride
