Elaboration and Characterization of the Nanometric Titanium Diboride Powders by Mechanical Milling Method
The research activities are oriented towards elaborating and characterizing nano-sized powders by powder metallurgy technologies based on wet milling in a planetary mill. For the elaboration of the TiB2 powders, a wet milling regime of initial powders was used up to nano size with the following parameters: milling technology by collision, milling times, rotational speed. The characterization of the TiB2 material will include particle size distribution analysis. EDXS and SEM analysis were used to study the structural evolution of the powder after ball milling. The mechanical milling technology, by its milling regimes, proved to be very efficient, obtaining a reduction of the titanium diboride powders particle size up to 50% compared to the initial unmilled powders.
