Microstructures and Wear Properties of Al Matrix Composites Fabricated by Two Different Processes

Abstract:

Article Preview

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).
