The start of melting as well as the melting range in WC-Co and WC-Ni hardmetals is significantly influenced by the alloy gross carbon content as well as by additives (V, Cr). Both Vanadium and Chromium significantly lower the start of melting but also broaden the melting range, in particular at low carbon content (formation of M6C-phases). As a result, a… CONTINUE READING
