The Influence of Production Process Parameters on the Properties W-Ag, Mo-Ag Composites


Article Preview

Attempts have been made to describe the influence of production process parameters on the microstructure and properties of W - Ag and Mo - Ag composites. The compositions of powder mixtures are W + 30% Ag and Mo + 30%Ag. Silver additions assists densification during sintering by a liquid phase sintering process. The main goal of this work is to compare properties and microstructure of as-sintered and as-infiltrated composites.
