Evaluation of Interfacial Reaction between Titanium Matrix Composites and Aluminium Alloy


Article Preview

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the interfacial reaction between titanium matrix composites (TMCs) and A380 alloy in aluminum die-casting. In-situ synthesized titanium matrix composites and H13 tool steel were immersed in molten A380 alloy in a mold at 993 K for times varying from 0 to 1200 s. In-situ synthesis TMCs and interfacial reaction between TMCs and A380 alloy were examined by X-ray diffraction, optical microscope, scanning electron microscope and electron probe micro-analyzer. The reaction behavior shows that TMCs can a substitution for H13 tool steel.
