Paper Title:
Mechanical Properties and Microstructure of Strip Casted Ag-27%Cu-25%Zn-3%Sn Brazing Alloy
  Abstract

This work sought to examine the suitability of twin roll strip casting for Ag-27%Cu- 25%Zn-3%Sn brazing alloy (BAg-7A) and to investigate the mechanical properties and microstructure of the strip. The effect of aging heat treatment on the properties was also studied. This new manufacturing process has applications in the production of the brazing alloy. XRD and microstructural analysis of the Ag-27%Cu-25%Zn-3%Sn strip represented eutectic microstructure of a Cu-rich phase and a Ag-rich matrix regardless of heat treatment. The results of mechanical tests showed tensile strength of 470MPa, a significant enhancement; and an 18% elongation of the twin roll casted strip, due mainly to the solid solution strengthening of Zn atoms (~20%) in the Cu-rich phases. Tensile results showed gradually decreasing strengths and increasing elongation with aging heat treatment. Microstructural evolution and fractography were also investigated and related to the mechanical properties.
