Process Conditions and Interfacial Characteristics of Al/Cu Clad Composite Formed by Hot Hydrostatic Extrusion
The relations between interfacial properties of clad composite and process conditions are studied. Adherence on interface of two materials is most significant property of clad composite. Properties of composite material are manifestation of its microstructure, and process conditions are decisive factor to the microstructure in interfacial area. In-depth understanding about the composite’s properties is only achieved through appreciation of the mechanism by which the process conditions affect the microstructure. Aluminum and copper clad composite bars are extruded at the various process conditions. Interfacial adherence of the extruded composite is examined. Microstructure of the dispersed layer and its vicinity is investigated.
