Abstract

The effect of B and C additions up to 0.4 at. % on glass formation and mechanical properties of a Zr-base alloy Vitreloy 105 was studied using various techniques. All alloys were prepared by arc melting and drop casting. Boron additions increase the glass forming ability by lowering Tm and increasing Tg. Carbon additions only lower Tm but not affect Tg. B and C additions occupy free space and do not harden the glass phase.
