    The American Ceramic Society publishes a book on Ceramics which gives properties (non-proprietary data) of numerous ceramics including carbides. I have an old copy, and I'll take a look and report what I find. Meanwhile, if one has access to Journal of the American Ceramic Society (U.S.); start with Vol: 33

    Gangler, J.J. , Some Physical Properties of Eight Refractory Oxides and Carbides, Journal of American Ceramic Society, Vol. 33, Dec 01, 1950.

    It is available electronically - http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/119787063/abstract

    See a related paper - http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/119787065/abstract

    Here are some properties - http://www.ppm.bc.ca/tic.htm [Broken]

    One can also find properties of carbides at www.matweb.com

    American Elements supplies carbides including TiC. One might be able to obtain specifications from them.
