Chemical Vapor Crystallization of Hard Nanocomposite Tungsten Carbide Layers for Extreme Applications

Abstract:

Article Preview

The physico-chemical fundamentals (thermodynamics, kinetics) of tungsten carbides crystallization process are presented. Chemically vapor deposited coatings composed of tungsten carbides, metallic tungsten matrix with nanoparticles of tungsten carbides are synthesized from gaseous mixture of tungsten hexafluoride, hydrogen and propane at temperatures ranging from 623 to 923 K and can be used as materials for extreme environments. The physical and mechanical characteristics of these CVD coatings are discussed.
