Interfacial Reaction in Al Matrix Composites Reinforced by Mg Borate Whisker


Article Preview

In the present study, MBOw/Al composites were fabricated using squeeze casting method. The interfacial reaction in the composite was investigated using transmission electron microscope (TEM). The tensile properties of the composites with different kinds of matrix were studied. The experimental results showed that the properties of the composite were very good.
