Influence of Aging Treatment on the Microstructure and Properties of Spray Formed CuNi15Sn8 Alloy
The CuNi15Sn8 alloy has quite potential applications in the field of the electrical appliance industry. However, this alloy is prone to generate the segregation of alloying elements at the grain boundaries because of the high content of Sn element with the low melting point by conventionally processing route. Although the CuNi15Sn8 alloy can be obtained by powder metallurgy or mechanical mixing techniques, it is hard to avoid the formation of oxidation in the alloy. As compared with these techniques, spray forming technique has obvious advantages in preparing the CuNi15Sn8 alloy. The spray formed CuNi15Sn8 alloy has indicated that the elements of Sn and Ni were very uniformly distributed in matrix with the fine equiaxed grains. Influence of aging treatment on the microstructure and properties of spray formed CuNi15Sn8 alloy was studied.
