Fabrication of Rod type Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18 Bulk Amorphous Alloy by Warm Extrusion Process


Article Preview

In this study, rod type Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18 bulk amorphous alloy fabricated by warm extrusion of amorphous powders was investigated. To get bulk type amorphous alloy, the Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18 amorphous powders which has a particle size below 63( and wide supercooled liquid region of 53K were prepared by a high-pressure gas atomization method. The powders were filled in a Cu can with an inner dimension 20×2×50mm in air, evacuated, sealed and then precompacted in the press. Before extrusion, the billet was heated with heating rate of 50K/min and the holding time was about 5min. The extrusion temperature was 723K and the extrusion ratio was increased from 2 to 5. By warm extrusion of amorphous powders, a fully amorphous Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18 bulk type alloys were successfully synthesized. The conditions for extrusion were decided based on the time-temperature-transformation curve and DSC analysis. Phase analysis was performed by XRD. The result of the phase analysis indicated that Cu54Ni6Zr22Ti18 bulk rod type samples having fully amorphous phase could be obtained until extrusion ratio of 4 at extrusion temperature of 723K, but partial crystalline phase would be observed in the bulk rod type alloy fabricated at extrusion ratio of 5.
