Summary

Various compositions in the Ti-B-Cu system were processed by the combustion synthesis process. Cu reduces the exothermicity of the reaction Ti + 2B–- TiB2 and also forms intermetallics with Ti which settle to the bottom. Hence,” Functionally Gradient Materials “can be obtained in the system. The resulting materials and their microstructures were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and X-Ray diffraction. The presence of the intermetallics may adversely affect the properties.
