Influence of aqueous milling duration on the sintered WC–10Co hard metal powders

Influence of aqueous milling duration on the sintered WC–10Co hard metal powders This paper presents the effects of aqueous processing of WC–Co powders on their sinterability and mechanical properties. WC–Co powders have been milled in aqueous media (distilled water + corrosion inhibitor). The as-milled samples have been compacted and sintered in vacuum at 1380 °C. The investigations performed on the two components, carbide and binder, reveal different oxidation behaviour in water, with a further effect on the properties of the sintered product. The decrease of the saturation magnetisation of the compacts corroborated with the microstructure reveals the oxidation of the samples milled for a longer duration. The magnetic properties, hardness and microstructure suggest that the used corrosion inhibitor is effective for short milling durations. Journal of Materials Science Springer Journals
