Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of New Particle-Disperse-Reinforced Mg Composite Mg- 6Al- 3B2O3- 1NaCl- 1CaCl2
In the present study, the conventional process of Compo-casting was carried and the microstructural and mechanical propertied were then investigated. The matrix alloy used was Mg- 6Al, and B2O3 was added into Mg-Al alloys was investigated at two levels of 3 and 6wt%. The other experimental materials were NaCl and CaCl2. The microstructures were of the samples analyzed with Optical Microscopy, SEM and XRD, and the mechanical properties were determined by micro-hardness and tensile test. The results showed that the mechanical properties of Mg- 6Al- 3B2O3- 1NaCl- 1CaCl2 increased and the microstructure was satisfactory, for a cast alloy, i.e.the tensile strength was 175MPa.
