Preparation of Cu-Zn Alloy by High Energy Ball Milling of Elemental Copper and Zinc
Cu-Zn alloy was prepared by high energy ball milling of elemental copper and zinc, With the Simoloyer attrition mill the particle around 10µm with good particle-size distributions can be made in 100 min. Through the analysis by TG-DTA, XRD, SEM, the results show that Cu-Zn alloys can be produced by ball milling without the formation of oxide even milling in the air atmosphere and subsequent heat treatment at 350°C, it indicated that the formation of the oxide can be avoided during ball milling by adding Al.
