Abstract:

Previous papers have revealed a monotonic decrease in the contact angle of wetting Al2O3 with iron melts with increase in the amount of carbon. In the present investigation for measuring the contact angles of wetting oxides of Al, Zs, and Be with iron carbide melts, the authors use the method of an embedded drop. Alloys with the given amount of carbon were produced by melting the iron with spectrally pure graphite in a vacuum furnace. After holding for about one hour the molten metal was cooled to room temperature.
