Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, arrived in Taiwan, becoming the highest-ranking US official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
The move was interpreted as a direct threat by China, which claims the island is part of its territory, and Beijing has repeatedly warned the US that its military will not "sit idly by" and "will take strong countermeasures".
As the international community waits to see how China will react, chipmakers in the business community are already feeling the pain of the brewing conflict between the US and China over Taiwan.
Semiconductor stocks tumbled on Tuesday in anticipation of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan.
Shares in TSMC, the world's largest and most valuable semiconductor maker, worth $440 billion, fell 2.4 per cent on Tuesday. Its Taiwanese counterparts United Microelectronics and MediaTek fell 3% and 1.6% respectively. Meanwhile, shares of the US chipmaker Intel fell 1.5 per cent on the same day.
As Ms Pelosi prepares to meet Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen, on Wednesday, technology investors are keeping a close eye on her actions-and any signs of retaliation from China. In the event of a dispute between China and the US, chipmakers, especially in Taiwan, are likely to be collateral damage.
Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk Cr3C2 Overview are still very uncertain.
Chromium carbide powder overview
Hafnium carbide HfC is a gray-black powder with a face-centered cubic structure and a very high melting point, 3890°C. It is known to have a high melting point in a single compound and is a good material for the lining of high melting point metal melting crucibles.
How is chromium carbide Cr3C2 powder produced?
Chromium carbide is produced by a combination of aluminothermic reduction and vacuum furnaces at temperatures of 1500°C and above. A mixture of chromium metal, chromium oxide and carbon is prepared and charged into a vacuum furnace. The pressure in the furnace decreased and the temperature rose to 1500°C. The carbon reacts with the chromium oxide to form chromium metal and carbon monoxide gas, which is pumped into a vacuum pump. The chromium metal then combines with the remaining carbon to form chromium carbide.
The precise balance between chromium oxide, chromium metal and carbon determines the grade of chromium carbide produced. This is strictly controlled to ensure Cr3C2 Overview is also increasing.If you are engaged in the Cr3C2 Overview industry, you just happen to contact us.
