Research on MAX phases can be traced back as far as the 1960s by Nowotny, et al. It was Nowotny et al. who first introduced the idea of ternary transition metal carbides (or nitrides). Barsoum first referred to the materials as “Mn+1AXn phases” in 2000 (or simply MAX phase). In which M represents the transition metal element and A the primary element. X refers to either C or N.

Titanium-Aluminum Carbide Max phase

In the MAX Phase of the Ti-AL-C, the Al can be quickly diffused and selectively oxygenized. The compact Al2O3 coating will prevent further oxidization. It is possible for the material to self heal at high temperatures due to its microstructure. This property is important to preserve the mechanical properties of the material and increase its reliability. The strength of self-welded Ti3AlC2/Ti2AlC laminates are much better than those of single-phase materials.

Prospect for Titanium Aluminum Carbide Max phase

These properties have drawn much attention over the years, including high damage tolerance, excellent mechanical and thermal properties, among others.
