Studies of fused tungsten carbide alloying by NbC, Cr3C2, B4C, VC, TiB2, Mo, and of their influence on alloy physico-mechanical properties have been performed. It is shown that the alloy properties largely depend on dimensions and quantity of the reinforcing phase, which can change in a broad range during solidification, depending on melt composition and thermal conditions of solidification. It is established that the high values of physico-mechanical properties of fused carbides are achieved at alloy structures, which are a matrix of one of the refractory compounds, reinforced by fibres of the second refractory compound. Increase of microhardness of the alloy spherical particles by 30-40 %, as well as of strength and wear resistance, particularly at alloying with molybdenum, is found. 6 Ref., 7 Figures.
Keywords: fused tungsten carbide, alloying, spherical particles, microhardness, microstructure, strength, wear resistance
