Wear Properties of Cast Aluminium Alloy 6061 Reinforced with Nanosilicon Carbide/Copper Hybrid Particles
Aluminium alloy 6061(AA6061) matrix composites were produced successfully by the stir casting method after a novel pre-treatment with reinforcements. The wear properties of composites were investigated. The results show that: the nanosilicon carbide (SiC) particles were embedded in solid copper (Cu) particles uniformly after 24 h of high-energy ball milling, and the hybrid reinforced particles uniformly dispersed in the Al matrix; The wear rate and the friction coefficient of the composites under various loads decreased as the reinforcements weight increased from 0.2% to 0.4%.
