Abstract : A series of experiments with bonding niobium to copper or a copper alloy by pack rolling in vacuum was performed in order to establish the optimum temperature and reduction, which would ensure a strong bond between both metals. The niobium copper composites are of interest as structural materials which should have a much higher heat resistance than that of copper and a lower susceptibility to local overheating than that of niobium; and as insert materials for welding titanium to steel since niobium is easily welded to titanium and copper can be easily joined to steel.
