Abstract

High melting temperature, high hardness, low theoretical density, high thermal and electrical conductivity values of TiB2 make it an important hard material which can be used in number of applications. TiB2 was produced by borothermic reduction reaction of titania. Mixture of raw powders was reacted at 1800 °C for 30 min. and TiB2 was produced. Chemical composition analysis and phase determination were performed on final powder, and it was determined that phase pure, micron sized TiB2 powder was synthesized. Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) without sintering additives was performed on the powder to produce dense samples.
