titanium carbide

[tī′tā·nē·əm ′kär‚bīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
TiC Very hard gray crystals insoluble in water, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia, melts at about 3140°C; used in cermets, arc-melting electrodes, and tungsten-carbide tools.

And as reinforcement, titanium carbide (TiC) for the properties it has, as high hardness, high melting point and good thermodynamic stability that makes it suitable to reinforce matrices of iron and steel (Xinhong et al., 2006; Zhong et al., 2011; Dogan et al., 1999; Onuoha et al., 2013), this powder was supplied by SIGMA-ALDRICH (99,95% purity).
To clarify the mode of deposition of titanium carbide nanolayer, model samples representing monocrystal silicon wafer with a sputtered layer of pure iron were used.
The study focuses on the joints, based on chromium carbide base cermets with Ni binder and titanium carbide base cermets with Ni-Mo and Fe-Ni steel binder phase (Table 1).
Taking into account the critical thickness of the coatings of titanium carbide or nitride the calculated thickness of the layers in the multilayer coating of titanium carbide was 3.4 [micro]m and in the case of titanium nitride it was 2.9 [micro]m.
A tungsten carbide wedge is used for aluminum wire, and a titanium carbide wedge is used for gold wire.
Alloy Integrity: Test cuts in titanium carbide (90% titanium/10% carbide) produced slots as wide as 0.250 x 0.300 inch deep, feeding at 1.5 inches per minute without adverse affect to either material.
This competition-style bodywork has been given a black titanium carbide treatment to avoid any scratching in case of impacts.
The Titanium 10X[R] Series circular saw blade was designed to be durable and long lasting, utilizing a unique and proprietary industrial-grade titanium carbide formulation to create a blade that is significantly tougher than standard carbide.
Titanium carbide and aluminium oxide are very hard materials, providing wear resistance, and chemically inert, providing a chemical and heat barrier between tool and chip (Sandwik Coromat, 1994).
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.
