The character ofthe reaction between zirconium dioxide and the carbides of group VI metals Cr3C2, Mo2C, and WC has been investigated by means of x-ray, chemical, and metallographic analyses. The nature of the intermediate and end products of the reactions has been determined, and the dependence of the phase composition of the reaction products on the sintering temperature has been established. A study has been made of the resistance of the carbides of molybdenum and tungsten and zirconium dioxide to acids and to mixtures of acids with oxidizing and complex-forming agents. A method is proposed for the chemical phase separation of the compounds concerned.
