Özet

The aim of this study is to provide information about microstructural and thermal properties of tungsten-based composites. Phase composition and microstructural characterization of tungsten composites were performed using X-ray diffractometer (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and Raman Spectroscopy. SEM images revealed the distribution of tungsten (W), vanadium carbide (VC) and graphite (C) powders in the tungsten matrix. The Raman spectra showed two major peaks, which are recorded at 1331 (vs) cm(-1), and 1583 (vs) cm(-1). These bands can be attributed to disorder graphite (D) and graphite (G). Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) measurements were performed to determine the weight loss and thermal stability of the tungsten-based composites under argon gas atmosphere and at high temperatures. TGA measurements were performed to determine weight loss and thermal stability of tungsten-based composites under argon gas atmosphere and at high temperatures. The TG curve showed a slight weight loss in this temperature range. Mass loss is thought to be due to oxidation and gas desorption of materials.
