A NOVEL APPROACH IS PROPOSED WHICH COMPRISES A NUMBER OF DISCRETE STEPS TO PROVIDE THE DESIRED AND PROPERTIES. THESE STEPS INCLUDE; MELT SPINNING AN IRON BASE ALLOY RIBBON; PRECIPITATING A HARD STABLE PHASE IN A UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF HIGH LOADING; HEATTREATING THE RIBBON CONTAINING THE DISPERSED PHASE TO OPTIMIZE THE STRENGTH AND DUCTILITY OF THE MATRIX PHASE. THE RIBBON DIMENSIONS WILL BE IN THE RANGE OF 20 TO 50 MICRONS THICK AND 3 TO 6 MM WIDE. THE EVALUATION OF THE FINAL RIBBON PRODUCT WILL INVOLVE HARDNESS MEASUREMENT, DUCTILITY AND BRAZING CHARACTERISTICS. IN PHASE II THE DEVELOPMENT EFFORT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS: 1. WIDE RIBBON FABRICATION; 2. COMPOSITION OPTIMIZATION; 3. WEAR CHARACTERISTIC EVALUATION; 4. SELECTED PRODUCT PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT.
