Materials scientists at Japan's Kyoto University investigated the properties of various compositions of molybdenum silicides, with and without additional ternary elements.
Although several molybdenum silicides exhibit excellent oxidation resistance, these intermetallics are too brittle for practical use as structural materials.
For the thermal spraying (TS) many powders, produced by the SHS method, are of interest: titanium, tantalum, zirconium, hafnium nitrides, etc,; titanium, tungsten, titanium-chromium carbides, etc.; titanium and titanium--chromium borides; molybdenum silicides and sulfides, and different oxides.
