Paper Title:
Nitrogen-Induced Formation of Nano-Structured Precipitations in the Ti-W-C-N System
  Abstract

A general trend in the field of hardmetals is to achieve a refinement of the microstructures, usually by using sub-micron powders as raw materials. In this study, an alternative route to produce fine structures within the fcc hard phase (W,Ti)(C,N) is investigated: nitrogen indiffusion into (W,Ti)C leads to precipitation of tungsten-rich phases. The mechanism of precipitation (lamella- and labyrinth-like structures with a size of 100-400nm) is thought do be discontinuous segregation on the one hand and spinodal decomposition on the other hand. Hot-pressed (W,Ti)(C,N) samples of different compositions were annealed at different temperatures and C activities in high-pressure N2 atmosphere. The composition and resulting structures of the precipitates were correlated with composition of the (W,Ti)(C,N) phase as well as with annealing conditions. An outlook of a possible application of the observed phenomena to powder particles is given to achieve micron-sized particles of this hard phase with nanometer-sized structures as a raw material for fine-grained hardmetals.
