Paper Title:
Characterization of the Corrosion Behavior of Hot Pressed Nanocomposites Al-SiC Powder
  Abstract

The object of the present work is the characterization of the corrosion behavior of Al-5%SiC nanocomposites prepared by mechanical alloying and the hot pressing method. Al/SiC metal matrix composite (MMCp) powder with volume fraction of 5% SiC was synthesized by high-energy milling of the blended micro component powder. The mechanically mixed nanocomposite powder was consolidated into bulk compacts using hot pressing at 1 GPa pressure for thirty seconds at three different temperatures of 440, 480 and 520°C. The microstructure was investigated by Secondary electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. The corrosion behavior of the coating was evaluated using electrochemical techniques such as potansiodynamic polarization and EIS. It was found that the corrosion resistance of Al-5%SiC nanocomposite when hot pressed at 480°C, in 3.5% NaCl solution was higher than pure Al and Al-SiC nanocomposite that had been hot pressed at other temperatures.
