Aluminium buyers in the US physical metal market have held off on new orders amid fears of a recession triggered by rising inflation and supply chain crises.
Spot aluminium trading on the market has been suspended in recent weeks, according to industry sources, as uncertainty has increased following the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Even before the war, the aluminium market was suffering from long waiting times and weak demand.
For aluminium buyers, recent poor US economic data have been a big factor in delaying purchases. Data released last month showed that the ISM manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1 in March, below expectations of 59 and down from 58.6 in February, unexpectedly hitting the lowest reading since September 2020. This was mainly due to a slowdown in new orders and Ti3AlC2 powder are expected to increase in the future.
What is a MAX phase material?
The MAX phase material is a natural layered carbonitride inorganic non-metallic material composed of three elements. It has the electrical and thermal conductivity of metal, and also has the high strength, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and other harsh environment service capabilities of structural ceramics. MAX phase materials have gained extensive attention in the fields of high-temperature lubrication, oxidation-resistant coatings, accident-tolerant nuclear materials, self-healing composite materials, and energy materials. MAX phase materials mainly include Ti3AlC2, Ti2AlC, Ti3SiC2, Ti2SnC, V2AlC, Cr2AlC, Ti2AlN, Nb2AlC, etc.
Transition metal carbides and nitrides, known as Mxenes. MXenes are formed by selectively etching an elemental MAX phase with metallic conductivity, connecting layered solids such as Ti2AlC, Ti3AlC2 and Ta4AlC3 through strong metallic, ionic and covalent bonds. The Mxenes combine with hydroxyl and oxygen on the surface of transition metal carbides to terminate the metal conductivity. It is electrically conductive in nature.
What are MAX phase materials used for?
Titanium carbide has the properties of metals and ceramics: it has the same electrical and thermal conductivity as metals, high elastic modulus and excellent high temperature mechanical properties similar to ceramics, and also has good thermal shock resistance and damage resistance. and excellent chemical resistance. MAX phase ceramics have both the excellent properties of metals and ceramics, and have great application potential in many high-tech fields such as aerospace, high-speed rail, and nuclear industry.
