Microstructures and Wear Properties of Al Matrix Composites Fabricated by Two Different Processes
SiC particulates reinforced metal matrix composites (MMCs) were fabricated by two different processes, pressureless infiltration and thermal spray. 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 vol% SiC reinforced Al matrix composites (AMCs) were fabricated by these two processes. For these AMCs, dry sliding wear tests were performed under a normal load of 3 N, a constant sliding speed of 0.2 m/s and sliding distance of 1000 m against an AISI 52100 ball. Microstructures and wear behavior were studied by means of scanning electron microscope (SEM) and electron probe micro-analysis (EPMA).
