Microwave Sintering of SiCp/Al Composite
Aluminum matrix composites reinforced by silicon carbide particles (SiCp/Al) were prepared using microwave sintering. The hardness, bending strength and compression strength of sintered composites had been measured. The results showed that SiCp/Al composite can be sintered by microwave in very short time. The oxidation or plating copper in silicon carbide surface can improve the mechanical properties of composites.
