Cerium Hexaboride Disc, CeB6 Discs
Cerium boride disc, also known as cerium hexaboride disc or CeB6, is a refractory ceramic material. The main use of cerium hexaboride is a hot cathode coating or a hot cathode made of cerium hexaboride crystals. It usually operates at a temperature of 1450 ° C.
Edgetech Industries, advanced ceramics division is a leading supplier of ceramic materials. We offer cerium boride disc or sputtering target of high purity and at competitive prices.
