Bureau of Mines researchers conducted this study to determine if favorable characteristics of binary systems could be combined in a ternary system in which both secondary components form laves phases with iron. The fe-mo-ta system was selected to determine if the inherent stability of the fe-mo system could be combined with the magnitude of hardening at low alloy contents of the fe-ta system. Low alloy contents are desirable to allow subsequent additions such as chromium and/or aluminum for oxidation resistance.
