Abstract : Effort was continued to evaluate commercial arccast Mo-0.5Ti sheet to establish base-line data for comparison with improved alloy sheet made by powder metallurgy. Unalloyed Mo and 4 Mo alloys exhibited good densification after being sintered for relatively short periods at temperaturesABOVE 2000 C. Two of the alloy compositions were rolled successfully to sheet, namely, Mo-0.5Ti0.05C and Mo-1.27Ti-o.29ZrH2-0.3C. This is the first time that sheet of the latter composition has been prepared by powder metallurgy methods. Three rolling schedules currently being employed are outlined. The rolling of several alloys, including the optimization of Mo-Ti-C, is described. (Author)
