The authors describe a technique for melt infiltration casting of composites with a metallic-glass matrix. We made rods 5 cm in length and 7 mm in diameter. The samples were reinforced by continuous metal wires, tungsten powder, or silicon carbide particulate preforms. The most easily processed composites were those reinforced with tungsten and carbon steel continuous wire reinforcement. The Zr41.2Ti13.8Cu12.5Ni10.0Be22.5 matrix was quenched to a glass after infiltrating the reinforcement. We analyzed the microstructure of the composites by x-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The measured porosity was less than 3% and the matrix was about 97% amorphous material.
