The performance of many wear-resistant materials can be improved further by incorporating diamond into the structure. Diamond that has been coated with titanium is known to adhere well to the matrix particles and also prevents reaction with H 2, which often is used in the sintering atmosphere. Two coating methods of coating diamond with titanium have been explored in this study: a sputtering method and a procedure that involves heating the diamond in a mixture of salt and titanium. The latter, which uses a salt mix of NaCl, KCl, and CaCl 2 and metallic titanium particles 3 μm in size, heated at a temperature of 750 °C in an argon atmosphere, is determined to be the best method.
