Jointing of Zirconia Ceramic and Titanium Alloy


Article Preview

Zirconia ceramic and titanium alloy were jointed by using an AgCuTi amorphous alloy as a solder. The microstructure and the properties of the joint are investigated. The results show that the microstructure and mechanical properties of the brazing seam are influenced by the brazing temperature, the heat time and the cooling rate. The shear strength of the joint decreases with increasing of the brazing temperature, the heat time and the cooling rate increase. The maximum shear strength of the joints reaches 178 Mpa. The optimal technical parameters are the brazing temperature of 1123 K, the heat time of 10 min and the cooling rate of 5 K/min.
