Abstract:Metals belonging to groups 4-6 of periodic table of elements form with carbon compounds named metal-like carbides (WC, TiC1-x, NbC, TaC, CryCz). It was established that is possible to achieve dense sintered bodies of this carbides at temperatures near 2000oC using only carbon powder as an additive. Its role consists in reduction of oxide impurities.
Presented paper summarized investigations on sintering of metal-like carbides with carbon. Dense WC, TiC1-x, NbC, TaC and CryCz bodies were characterized by KIc f…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
