Zirconium boride (Zr[B.sub.2]) is a new type of ceramic material, whose lamellar crystal structure is similar to graphite, exhibiting high performance including high melting point (>3,000[degrees]C), high hardness (36.0 GPa), high elastic modulus (around 500 GPa) and good friction performance [12,13].
