Heterogeneity of the chemical composition and hardness in micro-and macrovolumes is observed in ingots of molybdenum and tungsten alloys. The large carbide inclusions in the ingots are the result of uneven solidification.
Prolonged high-temperature annealing partially removes the chemical heterogeneity in ingots of the molybdenum alloy, leading to solution of the large carbides and improving the plasticity. Annealing of the tungsten alloy equalizes the hardness through the section of the ingot.
