Abstract

A major challenge in the processing of ultrafine materials is to control grain growth during sintering while preserving microstructural homogeneity. One approach to this problem is the use of microwave sintering, which offers rapid, uniform heating, making it possible to achieve sintering in reduced cycle times. The results of microwave sintering ultrafine cemented carbide powders are compared with those achieved using conventional sinterhipping.
