The Effect of the Conditions of Producing Carbide Powder on the Properties of Sintered Specimens
The effect of the content of incompletely reduced oxides on the sin-terability of components made of zirconium carbide powders has been investigated. It was found that increasing the oxygen content in ZrC powders from 0.2 to 7 wt.% reduces the rate of grain growth in the finished components and promotes stabilization of the grain size. A method for producing high-density ZrC specimens has been developed.
