Abstract:

An article having a wear resistant surface. The surface is defined by discrete hard wear resistant particles, such as titanium carbide TiC, embedded in a once molten upper region of a tough and ductile matrix, such as titanium or an alloy of titanium. The particles are physically trapped and metallurgically bonded within the matrix region which remains an integral part of the whole matrix as distinguished from a discrete layer or coating thereon.
