Effect of KBF4 Addition on the Microstructure of Mg-6Zn-1Si Alloy
In this study, the effect of KBF4 addition on the microstructure of the Mg-6Zn-1Si alloy has been investigated by Optical Microscopy (OM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) with Energy Dispersive Spectrometer(EDS). At 1.5wt% KBF4 addition, the morphology of Mg2Si phase completely changed from Chinese script type into uniformly, dispersedly distributed graininess or small block, with the average size of the Mg-6Zn-1Si alloy decreasing from 135μm to 82μm.
