Titanium carbide (TiC; CAS 12070-08-5) is a crystalline solid, with a melting point of 3067 °C and a density of 4.93 g/cm³. TiC is non-combustile, the self-ignition temperature is 272°C.The following mean volume diameters were determined for titanium carbide:
D90 = 4.33 μm ± 8 % (Urel), D50 = 2.07 μm ± 4 % (Urel), D10= 0.70 μm ± 14 % (Urel).

The substance is considered insoluble in water, as the transformation/dissolution test performed with titanium carbide samples at different pH (6, 7, and 8) showed no metal release in any of the tests performed (method detection limit: 0.4 µg/L).
