Cerium Hexaboride Ceramic Parts Description

Cerium Boride, also called Cerium Hexaboride or CeB6, is a refractory ceramic Cerium Hexaboride (CeB6) Ceramic Partmaterial. The principal use of cerium hexaboride is a coating of hot cathodes, or hot cathodes made of cerium hexaboride crystals. It usually operates at temperature of 1450 °C.

Cerium hexaboride, like lanthanum hexaboride, slowly evaporates during the cathode operation. In conditions where CeB6 cathodes are operated under 1850 K, CeB6 should maintain its optimum shape longer and therefore last longer. While the process is about 30% slower than with lanthanum boride, the cerium boride deposits are reported to be more difficult to remove.
