Title: USE OF A COBALT BASED METALLIC-GLASS IN JOINING MOSI2 TO STAINLESS STEEL

The successful use of a cobalt-based metallic-glass in joining molybdenum disilicide (MoSi{sub 2}) to stainless steel 316L was demonstrated. Such joints are being investigated for sensor tube applications in glass melting operations. The cobalt-based metallic-glass (METGLAS{trademark} 2714A) was found to wet the MoSi{sub 2} and stainless steel surfaces and provide high quality joints. Joining was completed at 1050 C for 60 minutes in two different ways; either by feeding excess braze into the braze gap upon heating or by constraining the MoSi{sub 2}/stainless steel assembly with an alumina (Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}) fixture during the heating cycle. These steps were necessary to ensure the production of a high quality void free joint. Post-brazing metallographic evaluations coupled with quantitative elemental analysis indicated the presence of a Co-Cr-Si ternary phase with CoSi and CoSi{sub 2} precipitates within the braze. The residual stresses in these molybdenum disilicide (MoSi{sub 2})/stainless steel 316 L joints were evaluated using X-ray diffraction and instrumented indentation techniques. These measurements revealed that significant differences are induced in the residual stresses in MoSi{sub 2} and stainless steel depending on the joining technique employed. Push-out tests were carried out on these joints to evaluate the joint strength.
