Regularities of structure formation in diamond−Fe–Cu–Ni–Sn–CrB2 systems


We study specific features of the formation of micro- and nanostructures in diamond−Fe–Cu–Ni–Sn–CrB2 composite materials obtained by sintering in the molds placed in a muffle furnace with subsequent hot post-pressing. We also clarify the mechanisms contributing to the improvement of the mechanical properties of these composites depending on the technological modes of their production.
