The evaporation of zirconium carbide containing 9.4–11.5 wt.%C has been studied in the temperature range 2000–2900°C. ZrC dissociates into its elements. The vapor phase of ZrC comprises Zr and C1 atoms and C2 and C3 molecules. The pressure of the components of the vapor phase is a complex function of composition and temperature.
