Abstract
Refractory carbide materials posses the erosion resistance and high temperature strength required for the severe environments experienced by cutting tools, well bore equipment, and rocket nozzles. In this Phase II, APS will continue its Phase I successes by further demonstrating the performance of the materials manufactured in Phase I. APS has assembled a world class team to help characterize and test the materials to failure and determine their true potential for various strategic and tactical missile applications. APS and its team will push towards Phase III commercialization for these unique and innovative materials.
