Article Preview

Microstructure and mechanical properties of a newly developed Zn61Al34M5 (M=Cu, Si, RE, et al.) alloy obtained by warm-compacting sintering technique were studied using optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) associated with measurements of mechanical properties. The results showed that the new alloy consisted of α-phase and η-phase and have good plasticity; its hardness increased by 10%~20% and density decreased by about 16% as compared with those of the traditional cast Zn-Al alloys.
