Wettability and contact interaction of gallium-containing melts with non-metallic solids

  • Ju. V. Naidich
  • Ju. N. Chuvashov


The wettability of sapphire, quartz and graphite by gallium, gallium-based binary alloys with indium, tin, copper, silver, nickel, manganese, chromium, vanadium and titanium and by ternary Cu-Ga-Ti, Cu-Ga-Cr and Cu-Ga-Mn alloys has been studied by sessile drop, plate weight and meniscus form methods. The character and intensity of contact reactions and the composition of transition layers at the solid—melt boundary have been investigated by X-ray analysis and profilographic measurements and the correlation between the wettability and the contact reaction intensity has been established. The condition for high wettability of non-metallic solids by multicomponent melts is shown to be a combination of high affinity of a component for solid phase atoms with high thermodynamical activity of this component in the melt.
