Fabrication and Properties of Al2O3 Short Fiber Reinforced Aluminium Matrix Composites
The Poly-crystal alumina short fiber reinforcing 2024 matrix composites was produced by the gas pressure infiltration, and a new apparatus has been developed for the infiltration of MMCs by the gas pressure infiltration technique. The reasonable sintering parameter for the preform were determined.The preform was heated at 450°C to remove the organic binder and pore-forming material, and then heated at 1050°C for 2.5h to obtain the comprehensive properties.Scanning electron microscope was used to observe the tensile fracture of Aluminum matrix composites, and the fracture feature of composites produced in different temperature was analyzed. The melting temperature of 2024Al was 800°C and holding time was 20mins; the infiltration gas pressure was 0.5Mpa and holding time was 20s.And then interface reaction is appropriate between the fiber and matrix ,a good performance of composites was produced.
