Synthesis of Ti3AlC2 Powder by High Energy Ball Milling and High Temperature Heat Treatment
Highly pure Ti3AlC2 powder was fabricated by combination of high energy milling and heat treatment with Ti, C and Al as starting materials. The details of reactions and phase evolution in fabrication process were investigated. The results shown that the Ti-Al intermetallics, Ti3AlC2 and TiC were formed in high energy milling. The as-milled powders were heat treated subsequently, and the Ti3AlC2 powder with high purity was produced from the reaction among Ti-Al intermetallics, Ti3AlC2 and TiC at relative low temperature (1100 °C).
