Effect of nickel on sintering of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis produced titanium carbide

  • S. K. Mishra (Pathak) (a1), S. K. Das (a1), A. K. Ray (a1) and P. Ramchandrarao (a1)


A detailed study of the sintering behavior of titanium carbide (TiC) powder synthesized by the self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) route was carried out with varying percentages of nickel. With an increase in the nickel content, porosity was found to increase along with Ni2.67Ti1.33 secondary phase at grain boundary. A 90–92% dense sintered body of TiC was produced from SHS-produced powder at 1800 °C with 10 wt% nickel.
