The effects of granulation of reactive mixtures Ti-Cr-C and Ti-Cr-C-Ni on the combustion temperature and velocity, as well as phase composition and mechanical properties (crushing ability) of combustion products, were studied. Granulation was associated with a 1.5-fold increase in combustion velocity, caused by a nearly 10-fold increase in gas permeability. Secondary reactions between TiC, Cr7C3, and molten Ni led to the formation of (Ti,Cr)C FCC solid solution and Ni2.88Cr1.12 intermetallics. After the combustion of Ti-Cr-C-Ni mixtures, prolonged fluorescence was registered, suggesting the exothermic nature of secondary phase formation reactions. The introduction of the nickel binder decreased the content of Cr in the solid solution (Ti,Cr)C owing to the formation of the Ni2.88Cr1.12 phase. To prevent the Cr depletion from the carbide solid solution, Ni-20%Cr binder was added to the granulated 80%(Ti + C)/20%(3Cr + 2C) mixture. Combustion of granulated mixture yielded brittle porous sinter cake, which was easy to crush and mill, whereas the combustion products from the powdered mixtures were more ductile and harder to crush.
