Microstructures of Rapidly Solidified Pb-Sb-Sn-Alloys
Rapidly solidified industrially stripcast Pb-Sb-Sn triboalloys showed microstructures typical for the eutectic decomposition of metallic glasses. Evidence was found of crystallisation above the glass transition temperature and ageing at room temperature. The observation supports a previous hypothesis by the authors on the wear properties of soft tribological alloys.
