Plating Copper on Al2O3 Powder in Ceramal
Copper film was plated on Al2O3 ceramic powder in Al2O3 ceramic with copper matrix. The influence of copper film plated on Al2O3 ceramic powder to friction coefficient and amount of wear has been studied in this paper. Variance analysis shows that copper film on Al2O3 ceramic powder does not have significance influence to friction coefficient, but has significance influence to amount of wear of Al2O3 ceramic with copper matrix. Amount of wear of Al2O3 ceramic with copper matrix decreases with the increase of copper film plated on Al2O3 ceramic powder initially. When the copper film plated is beyond 47%, The amount of wear reaches a stable volume, and almost does not reduce again with the increase of the copper film plated on Al2O3 ceramic powder. To Al2O3 ceramic with copper matrix in this paper, the optimum copper film plated is 47%.
