Improvement of Wear Resistance in Cemented Tungsten Carbide by Ion Implantation

  • G. Dearnaley


Cobalt and tungsten are among the few most important strategic materials in the West. For this reason, any process which produces a large increase in the life of cobalt-cemented tungsten carbide tools is to be welcomed, particularly when the economic justification is good.
