Preparation of tantalum carbides by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS)
- 62 Downloads
The refractory tantalum carbides can be successfully prepared by the SHS method when the following conditions are fulfilled: a) Pure starting materials (Ta and C powders) are used and the metal powder is of small particle size; b) the process is performed in a large (adiabatic) reactor with a maximum reaction mass charge.
The phase composition of the resultant products is strongly affected by the density of the starting charge and the synthesis temperature.
