Paper Title:
Manufacture of Al/SiC Composites by Pressure Infiltration Process
  Abstract

The SiCp performing sample was made first then Al/SiCp (65%) was manufactured. Appropriate component and proportion of binder and process parameters were selected to control the porosity. Debinding has succeeded by extractive and thermal debinding processes. SiCp preforming samples with good appearance, enough strength, and right porosity were obtained by pre-sintering process at 1100°C. Composites with high density and homogeneous microstructure were manufactured by pressure infiltration under 1050°C and 15MPa. The distribution of aluminium and silicon elements was homogeneous. The primary components of materials are aluminium, β-SiC and α-SiC. The thermal expand coefficient of composites is 8.0×10-6/°C at room temperature, which increases with temperature and reaches to 11.0×10-6/°C at 300°C. The density is 2.92g/cm3, and relative density is more than 97 %. The strength is about 500MPa, approaching to the upper limit of the theoretical value.
