Wetting of silicon carbide by Cu-Ti AND Cu-Sn-Ti alloys

  1. 1.

    It is shown that in the wetting of SiC by Cu-Ti and Cu-Sn-Ti melts the titanium acts as an interfacially active addition.

  2. 2.

    The fact that Cu-Sn-Ti alloys wet silicon carbide better than do Cu-Ti alloys is apparently attributable not to the interfacial activities of the titanium in these systems being different but to the lower surface tension of the liquid phase in the former case.
