Investigation of a Method to Consolidate Hard Materials in a Tough Matrix
The production of the so-called cemented carbides, a class of very hard, wear resisting materials manufactured by powder metallurgy processes, is well known. The uses to which these materials are put range from cutting tools to drawing dies for tungsten wire. The processes used to produce such products are combinations of cold pressing, hot pressing, regular sintering and liquid phase sintering. The resulting material is usually a hard substance imbedded in a tough matrix.
