Titanium nitride is used as a hard material for abrasive resistant surfaces as well as for the lining of crucibles and for the coating of graphites. It is stable against liquid metals such as aluminium, copper and iron. At 1200°C (2192°F) titanium nitride quickly oxidizes at air as well as in NO- and CO2-atmospheres.
