Abstract Hafnium carbide coatings with different carbon contents were synthesized in Ar-[C.
Keywords Hafnium carbide, Hard coatings, Microstructure, Mechanical properties, Magnetron sputtering
Hafnium carbide coating has high hardness, excellent wear resistance, good resistance to corrosion, and low thermal conductivity, which are ideal characteristics for use in high-temperature applications.
In this article, a series of hafnium carbide coatings with different carbon contents were synthesized by reactive magnetron sputtering, and the effects of different [C.
The phase constituting hafnium carbide coatings was determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) on the Dmax-2550/PC diffractor with Cu-[K.
The composition of hafnium carbide coatings acquired at different [C.

Examples include 20-vol% indium tin oxide in PMMA, 20- to 80-vol% hafnium carbide
fillers in PMMA, and 15- and 20-vol% copper in PMMA and PVA.
Such ceramics are difficult to mold into body-friendly shapes, since they are made of very hard ceramics such as boron carbide, zirconium carbide, hafnium carbide
, titanium carbide, or zirconium diboride.
