Aims & Scope

This international journal publishes original articles concerned with all aspects of refractory metals and hard materials.

The refractory metals comprise selected metals with melting points around 2000°C and higher, with similar powder metallurgical production and application. This includes the following metals and their alloys: Tungsten, Molybdenum, Chromium, Tantalum, Niobium and Rhenium.

Advances in hard materials continue and the journal will continue to deal with the production, uses and properties of the carbides, nitrides and borides of these metals and those of titanium as well as tools of ceramics, the superhard boron nitrides and diamond, and related compounds.

Papers are also published on the technologies of powder production (including their precursor materials), milling, granulation, cold and hot compaction, sintering, hot isostatic pressing, pulsed and other assisted consolidation, additive manufacturing, injection molding, as well as coatings on refractory metals, hard metals and hard materials. However, this does not include intermetallics and coatings on steel substrates. The characterization, testing, quality assurance and applications are also covered.

The International Journal of Refractory Metals and Hard Materials by bridging the gap between pure research and the more practical aspects of production and properties, will continue to provide a unifying medium for material scientists, technologists, engineers, designers and manufacturers.


Those companies involved in the manufacture and processing of refractory metals and hard materials, research institutes and universities carrying out research work in these fields.
