What are the differences between CrN and Cr2N?

Brazil, the world's largest sugar producer, has recently switched to ethanol chromium nitride price is predicted to go higher in the future.

What is chromium nitride?
Metal chromium and nitrogen can form metal chromium nitride with different nitrogen content under different conditions. the common nitrides of metal chromium are CrN and Cr2N, which is called chromium nitride. CrN and Cr2N are important metallurgical second phases of heat-resistant alloys, especially for special steels, they can be used as reinforcement additives.

What are the differences between CrN and Cr2N?
CrN and Cr2N have different physical, chemical and mechanical properties.
For Cr2N structure, the metal Cr has a closely packed hexagonal structure, and the non-metallic N atoms fill in the interstitial position of the closely packed hexagonal structure; in terms of the CrN structure, the metal Cr is arranged as a face-centered cubic lattice, and N atoms are filled in the octahedral gap of the face-centered cubic lattice to form a simple NaCl structure.
It is generally believed that the comprehensive performance of CrN is higher than that of Cr2N. For example, the acid and alkali corrosion resistance of CrN is obviously higher than that of Cr2N.

What is chromium nitride used for?
CrN is used as an anticorrosive coating material for metal forming and plastic forming applications.
CrN is commonly used in medical implants and tools.
CrN is also a valuable ingredient in advanced multi-component coating systems, such as CrAlN, for hard wear-resistant applications on cutting tools.

What is chromium nitride coating?
Chromium nitride is an extremely hard and inert film coating, which is mainly used in precision metal parts. Chromium nitride (CrN) has higher temperature resistance than TiN, so it is an ideal choice in high temperature environment. CrN also performs well in corrosive environments and sliding wear applications.

Chromium nitride coating properties:
The residual compressive stress is lower than that of TiN. Can be piled up thicker.
It is a dense, continuous coating, unlike hard chromium with microcracks.
Can withstand high temperatures of up to 700°C (1300°F) in the air.
Thin film coatings for environmentally safe physical vapor deposition (PVD) vacuum systems.
It can be used in most metals to provide enhanced surface properties, as well as in some ceramics and plastics.
It has the appearance of metallic silver, but it is a superhard material.
Harder than hard chromium plating, up to Rockwell C grade.
Highly inert, non-corrosive, excellent chemical resistance.
Non-toxic-used in medical and surgical equipment and food processing equipment.
High density, no holes.
Usually 3 microns or. 0001 "thick.
Has a thickness consistent with the surface profile of the part.
Form a good bond with the substrate without blistering, peeling or detritus

Russia and Ukraine clashed again. Wheat and corn futures rose after Russia attacked the grain port in Ukraine.

Russia attacked the grain port in Odessa, Ukraine, with cruise missiles a few days ago. Surprisingly, Russia and Ukraine signed a grain export agreement in Turkey shortly before the attack. This has aroused a lot of heated discussion in the international community, and some people are worried that the outward transportation of black grain will change again. Wheat and corn futures prices rose sharply after a review of the futures market on Monday.

Millions of tons of grain have been blocked in Ukraine since the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Although a small amount of food has been diverted through roads and railways, major customers in the Middle East and North Africa are still forced to seek food supplies in other countries, pushing up food prices and exacerbating the global food crisis.

The grain export agreement signed by Russia and Ukraine in Turkey recently is regarded as an important step in alleviating the global food crisis. The agreement allows Ukraine to ship goods from three Black Sea ports, one of which is Odessa.
