The best-characterized methanides are probably beryllium carbide Be 2 C and aluminum carbide Al 4 C 3. Beryllium oxide BeO and carbon react at 2000, C 3600, F to produce the brick-red beryllium carbide, whereas pale yellow aluminum carbide is prepared from aluminum and carbon in a furnace.
Cemented carbide Wikipedia.
By controlling various parameters, including grain size, cobalt content, dotation e.g, alloy carbides and carbon content, a carbide manufacturer can tailor the carbide's' performance to specific applications. The first cemented carbide developed was tungsten carbide introduced in 1927 which uses tungsten carbide particles held together by a cobalt metal binder.
