Wettability of Molten Ti on ZrO2
The wettability between pure liquid titanium and calcia-stabilized zirconia was studied in argon atmosphere. The micrographic observations made on cross section perpendicular to the interface using SEM showed that interfacial reaction occurred. However, the contact angles were larger than 90°within experimental duration.
