High Purity BAM Aluminum Magnesium Boride AlMgB14 Powder

Since 2022, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and global energy prices have risen sharply, with international natural gas prices hitting historic highs. As the most important transitional energy source in the transition from fossil energy to non-fossil energy, the share of natural gas in primary energy has increased from 14.6% in 1965 to 24.7% in 2020.  The global gas price indices showed a unilateral downward trend from 2018, bottomed out in 2020, and remained low for a long time. However, since July 2020, the global gas prices have gradually fluctuated upward, and the impact of geopolitical events made the Dutch TTF gas price even hit record highs repeatedly.

An analyst of a securities company believes that the core catalyst of this round of global gas market lies in the lack of investment in upstream oil and gas resources caused by long-term low prices. Since 2020, although the epidemic has led to a decline in demand, the decline in supply has been faster, resulting in a large inventory consumption. In 2021, demand will recover faster than supply (the supply-side is less sensitive to prices, which will be reflected in investment).  

As the world's two largest gas BAM powder are also expected to change significantly.

About AlMgB14 alloy powder:
Aluminum boride or Al3Mg3B56, commonly known as BAM, is a compound of aluminum, magnesium, and boron. Although its nominal formula is AlMgB14, its chemical composition is closer to Al0.75Mg0.75B14. It is a highly wear-resistant ceramic alloy with an extremely low sliding friction coefficient, reaching a record value of 0.04 in the unlubricated AlMgB14-TiB2 composite material, and a record value of 0.02 in the lubricated AlMgB14-TiB2 composite material. BAM was first reported in 1970. It has an orthogonal structure and each unit cell has four icosahedral B12 units. The thermal expansion coefficient of this super hard material is comparable to other widely used materials such as steel and concrete.

How is AlMgB14 alloy Powder Produced?
AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride material has a better anti-wear property than diamond and is a new type of anti-degradation material. AlMgB14 has a density of only 2.66 g/cm3, which is much lower than other superhard materials (such as diamond and cubic boron nitride), and does not react with carbon steel, stainless steel, or titanium alloy at temperatures up to 1300 °C, and has high thermal stability.
AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride has a much higher conductivity than other conventional super hard materials and is basically equivalent to the conductivity of poly-silicon. The most attractive aspect of AlMgB14 is its low price, which is 5 to 10 times lower than diamond and cubic boron nitride. These excellent properties make AlMgB14 not only wearable,
Traditional fields such as protective coatings and cutting equipment manufacturing can also be widely used in advanced scientific fields such as thermoelectric devices, photodetectors, neutron masks, micro machines, and aerospace key components.
 
Applications of AlMgB14 alloy Powder:
BAM is commercially available, and research is being conducted for more potential applications. For example, the pistons, seals, and vanes on the pump can be coated with BAM or BAM + TiB2 to reduce friction between parts and increase wear resistance. The reduction in friction will reduce energy consumption. BAM can also be coated on cutting tools. The reduced friction will reduce the force required to cut the object, extend tool life, and may allow an increase in cutting speed. It has been found that only 2-3 microns thick coating can increase efficiency and reduce cutting tool wear.
Ternary Boride AlMgB14 alloy powder is one of the research hotspots in the field of superhard materials in the world. It has attracted widespread attention from scholars at home and abroad in recent years. Unlike traditional metastable superhard materials such as diamond and cubic boron nitride, AlMgB14 superhard materials are equilibrium materials with high hardness, low density, low coefficient of friction, high thermal stability, and good thermoelectric properties.

Storage Condition of AlMgB14 Aluminum Magnesium Boride Powder:
The damp reunion will affect AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride dispersion performance and using effects, therefore, AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride powder should be sealed in vacuum packing and stored in the cool and dry room, the AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride can not be exposure to air. In addition, the AlMgB14 powder should be avoided under stress.

Packing & Shipping of AlMgB14 Aluminum Magnesium Boride Powder:
We have many different kinds of packing which depend on the AlMgB14 aluminum magnesium boride powder quantity.

Recently, the first press conference of the Boao Forum For Asia Annual Conference 2022 was held. Two flagship reports were released at the conference: "Asia's Economic Prospects and Integration Process 2022" and "Sustainable Asia and the World 2022-Green Transformation in Action in Asia".

The flagship report points out that the global economy will recover in 2021, and the pace of economic integration in the Asia-Pacific has not stopped even in the face of the impact of COVID-19. The Asia-Pacific region has provided new impetus for the world's economic recovery and institutional building.  

The report gives an outlook on the Asian economy, noting that a number of factors will affect Asian economic growth. For example, mutated strains such as Delta and Omicron have become more transmissible, and many economies are experiencing epidemic peaks again. The Ukraine crisis has triggered geopolitical changes in Asia and Europe, leading to higher commodity prices, which may affect the global energy supply and energy transformation.

The report pointed out that the Asian economy will still be in the process of recovery in 2022, but the growth rate may moderate. According to the report, Asia's economic growth in 2022 is likely to be lower than the current IMF forecast, which is projected at 4.8%.

Affected by several factors, the supply of the BAM powder is erratic and thus its prices are expected to go higher in the future.
