In order to discover materials with a very low temperature coefficient of the electrical resistivity, a study has been made of the temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity of carbides of the transition metals of groups IV to VI, of the carbides TiC, ZrC, and NbC in their homogeneity ranges, and of the complex carbides of the systems ZrC-WC and VC-WC. It is shown that the coefficient diminishes with increase in the proportion of covalent bonding in the Me-Me bond in the compounds investigated.
