Abstract

Graphite addition on the particle grain sizes, multiple phases and the ultrafine Ti (C0.9, N0.1) composite produced by means of spark plasma sintering (SPS) was examined by means of X-ray diffractometer (XRD), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) equipped with energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS). From the results analysed, the presence of graphite increased the porosity of sintered Ti (C0.9, N0.1) cermet and thereby crippled the sinterability of Ti (C0.9, N0.1). Significantly, graphite additions had an influence on particle size, morphology, microstructure and phases of ultrafine Ti (C0.9, N0.1) by inhibiting the dissolution of titanium carbonitride, outer rims phases and the inner rim formation, thereby causing grain growth reduction. Because of depressed dissolution and solution precipitate, graphite phase evolution in the composite has reduced. Furthermore, the presence of graphite improved the micro indentation hardness of Ti (C0.9, N0.1) composite and sintered relative density of the cermets.
