Investigation of Some Properties of VT5L Alloy with Rare Earth Additions

  • V. A. Kaschuk

The effects of small rare earth additions on the structure, mechanical properties at 20°, 450°, and 550°C, oxidizability, and thermal stability of VT5L alloy were investigated. The VT5L experimental alloys with additions of individual rare earth metals (REM) were smelted by consumable electrode melting in vacuum in an arc-shaped scull-melting electric furnace. High-purity elements: La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb, Er were introduced into the alloy separately in concentrations of 0.005, 0.01, 0.12 and 0.25wt%.
