  • Patent number: 10309158
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a method of fabricating a polycrystalline diamond compact (“PDC”) includes forming a polycrystalline diamond (“PCD”) table in the presence of a metal-solvent catalyst in a first high-pressure/high-temperature (“HPHT”) process. The PCD table includes bonded diamond grains defining interstitial regions, with the metal-solvent catalyst disposed therein. The method includes at least partially leaching the PCD table to remove at least a portion of the metal-solvent catalyst therefrom. The method includes subjecting the at least partially leached PCD table and a substrate to a second HPHT process under diamond-stable temperature-pressure conditions to partially infiltrate the at least partially leached PCD table with an infiltrant. A maximum temperature (T), a total process time (t), and a maximum pressure (P) of the second HPHT process are chosen so that ? is about 2° Celsius·hours/gigapascals (“° C.·h/GPa”) to about 325° C.·h/GPa, with ? represented as ?=T·t/P.

  • Patent number: 10280687
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to polycrystalline diamond compacts and methods of manufacturing such compacts in which an at least partially leached polycrystalline diamond (“PCD”) table is infiltrated with first and second infiltrants. The first infiltrant includes a low viscosity cobalt-based and/or nickel-based alloy infiltrant. The second infiltrant (e.g., copper) is specifically selected to be more easily infiltrated and/or removed (e.g., leached) than a pure cobalt infiltrant. In an embodiment, a method includes forming a PCD table in the presence of a metal-solvent catalyst in a first high-pressure/high-temperature (“HPHT”) process. The PCD table may be at least partially leached to remove at least a portion of the metal-solvent catalyst therefrom. The leached PCD table and a substrate are subjected to a second HPHT process effective to bond the substrate to the leached PCD table while at least partially infiltrating the PCD table with at least the first and second infiltrants.

  • Patent number: 10245704
    Abstract: Provided are abrasive articles in which the make layer, abrasive particle layer, and size layer are coated onto a backing according to a pre-determined coating pattern. All three components are generally in registration with each other, thereby providing a pervasive uncoated area extending across the backing. Advantageously, this configuration provides a coated abrasive that displays superior curl-resistance compared with previously disclosed abrasive articles. Moreover, this configuration resists loading, resists de-lamination, has enhanced flexibility, and decreases the quantity of raw materials required to achieve the same level of performance as conventional abrasive articles.

  • Patent number: 9968994
    Abstract: A casting nozzle suited to manufacture a casting material of pure magnesium or magnesium alloy is provided. A nozzle is utilized to manufacture a casting material by supplying molten metal to a portion between rolls which become a casting die, and arranged so that a pouring port is located between a pair of rolls opposed to other. This nozzle includes a main body formed of oxide material such as alumina, and a coating layer which is provided on the inner surface of the main body which comes into contact the molten metal, and formed of material that does not include oxygen substantially. Since the main body does not come into direct contact with the molten metal due to the coating layer, it is possible to prevent oxygen included in the main body from reacting with the molten metal.
