Effects of Ball Mill Additives on Properties of Bronze Powder
Bronze powders were prepared using high-energy ball mill method. Effects of different additives on particle size and its distribution, gloss, water coverage and oxidation resistance of powders were discussed. The results shows that aluminum stearate has a great impact to sheet formation of bronze powder. Hexadecanoic acid has a great influence on the gloss and water surface covering. Polyvinyl alcohol(PVA) has a marked effect to improve oxidation resistance of the bronze powders.
