Preferential Grain Orientation in Hot Pressed TiB2
Preferential grain growth is reported for hot pressed titanium diboride (TiB2) prepared at 1800°C and 50 MPa. Orientation imaging microscopy and X-ray diffraction revealed that the grains in the material were preferentially orientated with the  direction parallel to the mechanical field. The experimental findings are discussed, with emphasis on the anisotropic properties of TiB2.
