Assessment of reactions occurring during the solid state processing of iron-based titanium diboride composites

The reactions occurring during the solid-state processing of Fe-C/TiB2 composite materials have been assessed. Optical microscopy and X-ray diffraction have been used to identify the products of reaction after sintering and hot isostatic pressing of such materials in the temperature range 1000–1200 °C. TiC has been seen to form readily at the TiB2/Fe interface: an apparently continuous layer of TiC forms on the surface of the TiB2, hindering further reaction. Solid state processing appears to be a potentially viable route for the production of iron-based TiB2 composite materials.
