  • Patent number: 6986381
    Abstract: Molds are fabricated having a substrate of high density, high strength ultrafine grained isotropic graphite, and having a mold cavity coated with a refractory metal such as W or Re or a refractory metal carbide such as TaC or HfC. The molds may be made by making the substrate (main body) of high density, high strength ultrafine grained isotropic graphite, by, for example, isostatic or vibrational molding, machining the substrate to form the mold cavity, and coating the mold cavity with titanium carbide via either chemical deposition or plasma assisted chemical vapor deposition, magnetron sputtering or sputtering. The molds may be used to make various metallic alloys such as nickel, cobalt and iron based superalloys, stainless steel alloys, titanium alloys and titanium aluminide alloys into engineering components by melting the alloys in a vacuum or under a low partial pressure of inert gas and subsequently casting the melt in the graphite molds under vacuum or low partial pressure of inert gas.

  • Patent number: 4919732
    Abstract: New Iron-Neodymium-Boron base alloys containing hafnium diboride, zirconium diboride and titanium diboride are disclosed. The alloys are subjected to rapid solidification processing technique which produces cooling rates between 10.sup.5 to 10.sup.7 .degree.C.second. The as-quenched filament, ribbon or particulate, powder etc. consists predominantly of a single amorphous phase. The amorphous powder is heat treated above the crystallization temperature into microcrystalline powder which is subsequently ground into ultrafine particles with average size less than 5 microns by attritor or hammer mill. The ultrafine powder particles are simultaneously aligned and cold compacted by the combined action of an applied magnetic field and uniaxial pressure. The green compacts containing particles with mostly aligned grains with their easy magnetization axes parallel to the applied field direction are sintered into bulk forms.

  • Patent number: 4895607
    Abstract: New Iron-Neodymium-Boron base alloys containing diboride based on zirconium, titanium or tantalum are disclosed. The alloys are subjected to rapid solidification processing technique which produces cooling rates between 10.sup.5 to 10.sup.7 .degree.C./second. The as-quenched filament, ribbon or particulate, powder etc. consists predominantly of a single amorphous phase. The amorphous powder is consolidated into bulk shapes by the method of hot extrusion. The bulk alloys consist of a ultrafine grained homogeneous crystalline phase dispersed with ultrafine sized particles of zirconium diboride, titanium diboride or tantalum diboride either singly or combined. The bulk alloys exhibit superior hard magnetic properties suitable for many engineering and scientific applications.

  • Patent number: 4576653
    Abstract: Boron-containing transition metal alloys based on one or more of iron, cobalt and nickel, and containing at least two metal components, are characterized by being composed of ultrafine grains of a primary solid-solution phase randomly interspersed with particles of complex borides which are predominantly located at the junctions of at least three grains of the primary solid-solution phase. These alloys are obtained by devitrification of the solid, amorphous state under specific heat-treatment conditions. These alloys can be consolidated into three-dimensional bodies.
