Active metal brazing of alumina with alumina, graphite and monel 404 superalloy was performed at 910 degrees C for 5 min using TICUSIL (68.8Ag-26.7Cu-4.5Ti in wt.%) as the braze alloy in vacuum of 5 x 10(-6) mbar. The brazed joints were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray analysis, nanohardness and Young's modulus measurements by depth sensitive indentation technique. X-ray diffractrometry showed that the Ti-based compounds were formed at the substrate-filler alloy interfaces of the brazed joints as reaction products. The cross sectional microstructures of the brazed joints were observed by scanning electron microscopy. The energy dispersive X-ray analysis determined the elemental compositions at the selective points of the joint cross section, which supported the X-ray diffraction results. The nanohardness and Young's modulus of the substrate-filler alloy interface showed no abrupt change, which suggests reliable joint performance in service.
