Paper Title:
Processing of Zinc-Based MgAl2O4 Composite and Effect of Fly Ash Addition
  Abstract

The properties of ceramic-metal (Cermet) composites as tensile strength, hardness and resistance to corrosion and high temperature are superior than ceramics and metals. Because of the enhanced characteristics of cermets, they are commonly used in various applications and industries. The main objective of this study is to produce a cheap, easy produced, strong and high corrosion resistant composite material. For these purposes, zinc is used for its natural capacity against corrosion, low density, low melting point and softness. Magnesium aluminates spinel oxide (MgAl2O4) is chosen because of its high melting point and low density. Fly ash is a waste from coal power plant having puzzolanic properties. In this study, the effect of various amounts of zinc and fly ash addition on density and hardness behaviour of zinc-based MgAl2O4 composites was investigated. The experimental results showed that zinc and fly ash addition improved the hardness behavior of zincbased MgAl2O4 composite.
