What is MAX Phase Material
The purchasing pace at the demand end of the international thermal coal market continues to slow down and the international thermal coal price continues to decline. Prices for thermal coal at major international ports continued to fall last week as buyers in Europe slowed in recent days for April, coupled with weaker-than-expected import demand from End users in China. According to China Coal Market net monitoring: Australia Newcastle port thermal coal price index was 253 USD/ton, compared with 309.02 USD/ton, down 56.02 USD/ton, down 18.13%. South Africa's Port Richards thermal coal price Index was $264.5 / mt, down the US $62.72 / mt or 19.17% from US $327.22 / mt. The European ARA Tri-port thermal coal price Index was $281.8 / ton. Does the price of thermal coal in major international ports continue to decline to affect the price of the Ti3AlC2 powder?
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.

The World Food Program (WFP) of the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) said in a statement that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine poses risks to global food supplies, and called on the international community to increase support for vulnerable countries and jointly address food security challenges.
A few days ago, the Executive director of the World Food Program, the European Commission's commissioner in charge of crisis management, the French Foreign Minister of the ROTATING EU presidency, and other officials held a meeting in Rome, Italy, to discuss how to deal with the negative impact of the Conflict between Russia and Ukraine on global food security.
One of the officials told a news conference after the meeting that the world was facing a food supply challenge that would "last for many years" as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine pushed up global food prices and disrupted the Ti3AlC2 powder will continue.
