Method of increasing the hardness of wurtzite crystalline materials
The method of increasing the hardness of wurtzite crystalline materials is directed to the production of tool bits and inserts having a hardness approaching that of diamond, while simultaneously providing greater toughness and fracture resistance than diamond. The method includes forming a workpiece of boron nitride having a wurtzite crystal structure (wbn), and optionally combining boron nitride having a cubical crystal structure (cbn) with the wbn material.
