The gamma/WC solubility boundary in the quaternary TiC-NbC-TaC-WC system at 1723 K

Abstract

The composition of the gamma phase in equilibrium with tungsten carbide has been experimentally determined at 1723 K by use of the electron microprobe. The systems studied are the ternary TiC-TaC-WC, TiC-NbC-WC, NbC-TaC-WC systems and the quaternary TiC-NbC-TaC-WC system at two TaC/NbC ratios.
