At this temperature, the zinc dust vaporized and diffused into the steel parts, building a layer of zinc-iron intermetallics across all exposed surfaces.

As a result of the severe mechanical deformation caused by the tool rotation effect, the majority of the coarse constituent particles that are present within the matrix alloy in random distribution are fragmented to finer and more uniformly intermetallics within the weld nugget.
Structural Intermetallics and Intermetallic Matrix Composites
However, the potential of TiAl intermetallics cannot be fully exploited if no proper technologies are available to fabricate engine components, for example, turbine blades.
We saw a trend where alloys that produced smaller intermetallics also produced fewer whiskers, but only one of the nine alloys analyzed showed a definite statistical relationship.
The research team designed a series of tests using four different drills on three alloys to examine the effects of ferrous intermetallics and free-cutting elements on the machinability, drilling force and torque, and how tool material affected tool wear and life.
Specific topics include the development and property evaluation of low-silicon aluminum casting alloys for thermal dissipation, the microstructural modeling of magnesium alloys and experimental validation, the design of a composite roll with internal cooling channels for twin-roll casting, high strength and high ductility in nanostructured aluminum-based intermetallics produced by high-pressure torsion, and novel environmentally friendly coatings for aerospace alloys.
The process is ideal for the treatment of iron and steel-based materials; it can also be used for the treatment of many non-ferrous metals and their alloys, intermetallics, cemented carbides, and cermets.
This joint venture (JV) will manufacture sintered NdFeB permanent rare earth magnets utilising the technology licensed from Intermetallics Inc, a partnership between Mitsubishi, Daido and Dr.

The results of the present study, which are available at Intermetallics, volume 18, pages 1517-1523, 2010, show that the beginning time of aluminide coating formation at a definite temperature is reduced as a result of sublayer being nanostructured and the type of coating is also converted from single-layered to double-layered (during long time aluminizing).
