Properties of fine metal powders produced by the formate pyrolysis method
Optimum parameters have been determined for the processes of preparation of fine copper, nickel, and cobalt powders by the pyrolysis of formates in a protective argon atmosphere. Use of fine copper, nickel, and cobalt powders prepared by this method as interlayers in the vacuum diffusion welding of copper and steel parts enables the temperature of the process to be substantially lowered. Copper coatings can be applied to metallic and nonmetallic materials in the course of the pyrolysis of copper formate.
